Older vines, make bolder Zinfandels. The main source of this Zinfandel, the Bruella and Fathom vineyards, are home to vines over forty years old. These vineyards produce exceptional grapes with a character only found in California, yielding Zinfandel as rich and spicy and their history.
Early season growth was nice and uniform, and the bloom period weather conditions could not have been better. While June had cooler than normal temperatures, July and August saw temperatures consistently above average. The winter rainfall, excellent irrigation and canopy management along with quick harvest mobilization all played important roles in producing a beautiful vintage.
Blueberry/blackberry flavors, with lightly spicy aromas. Balanced, pleasant mouthfeel, filling viscocsity and a gentle toasty finish.
Boneshaker’s full body is a great pairing for cioppino, lasagna, or pizza.
