This Zinfandel is derived from dry-farmed, head-pruned vines with roots that run deep in sandy soils. These rare vines, some well over 100 years old, form the backbone of the Ancient Vines collection. The grape juice, skins, and seeds (called “Must”) along with some added yeasts were fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at the optimum temperature to extract rich flavors and provide excellent color. The wines were pressed off their skins at dryness and racked gently before being laid down on American oak for 7 months.
