A cool (by Paso standards) vintage, 2011 was particularly challenging for warm weather grape varieties. A delayed harvest, well into mid October, allowed Adelaida’s Zinfandel grapes to develop their full potential.  Ripeness levels even exceeded previous years, but that is what allows the characteristic “Zin” flavors to emerge.

Our Estate vines are based on heritage clones, cuttings grafted from neighboring century old vines.  The dry-farmed vineyard is head trained (aka bush vines) with 11 foot spacing between individual plants, therefore diminishing competition between thirsty roots searching deeply for ground water.

I am enjoying a glass as I type! It is all ZIN with a peppery, briary mouth feel and warm finish thanks to its high alcohol content. The only thing missing: a barbque beef sandwich light on the sauce!
