2004 Zinfandel
Russian River Valley Old Vine, 104 Years Old Limited Edition

Tasting Notes

A showy and rich Zinfandel, this wine showcases the dense palate that is so cherished from this prized 102-year-old vineyard. A heady perfume of spiciness, earthiness and plum compote signals the sumptuous tasting that is to follow. Jewel-like flavors of ripe black fruits and deep plum unfold in the mouth, polished with nuances of dried figs and dark chocolate. Beautifully integrated layers swell throughout the lengthy and well balanced finish. This remarkable vineyard was planted in 1902 by Louis Baldacci, a prominent winegrower and farmer for generations. The vines are dry farmed and head pruned in the old Italian style, and today the vines yield tiny amounts of fruit that pack powerful flavors.
