Winemaker Robert Smerling Notes
Beautiful 50 year old head trained vines. Well manicured, suckered and thinned.The fruit was delicious and came in at 26 brix. We cold soaked for a day, then started fermintation. ML occurred naturally and the wine went dry. The flavors were perfect, jammy fruit, hints of spice, aromas of cedar. To enhance the color we added Petite Sirah. What we ended up with was a classic example of 50 year old head trained Old Vine Zin. We barrel agged in 2 to 3 year old barrels not to influnce the wine. After 12 months the wine was ready for bottling.
