Old Vines Zinfandel, Bacchi Vineyard, Russian River Valley (2014)

This Zinfandel is a bit of a showoff with layered, complex aromas of rhubarb, sage, wild berries and licorice. Bright flavors of blackberry and cranberry merge with some spicy notes of anise and white pepper for a long, lingering and voluptuous finish.

Warm sunny days throughout the spring and summer months set the stage for a spectacular harvest in September 2014. The lack of rain meant that harvest began a little earlier than normal and was short in length, finishing up by the end of October. The temperate days leading up to harvest produced good yields of high quality fruit with concentrated flavors, complex aromatics and excellent structure.

Sitting low in the Russian River Valley with numerous Eucalyptus trees and wild herbs surrounding its outer edges, Bacchi Vineyard produces one of our most distinctive Zinfandels. It’s a true expression of terrior, a word that describes what different vineyard characteristics, such as climate, soil and geography, bring to the wine. Every vintage of Zinfandel from this century-old vineyard is unforgettably unique and compelling.

The grapes undergo a five day cold soak before fermentation to extract optimal color and aroma. After primary fermentation, the wine is pumped into French oak barrels, 20% new, where it undergoes natural malolactic fermentation, followed by 16 months of aging
