Vineyard Notes
Our School House Road Zinfandel is a modern take on the classic field blend. To create well balanced wines, Italian immigrants planted vines in California based on their knowledge of which grapes grew well together. Today, many Zinfandel vineyards are still planted alongside Petite Sirah, carignan or even white grape varieties. In 1996, we planted a vineyard to pay homage to that heritage, but with a modern twist: 80% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah and 7% Barbera.
Production Notes
We harvest and co-ferment all three varieties together, forging unique aroma and flavor combinations that could not be duplicated by blending after fermentation.
Winemaker Notes
The fruit from this vineyard was handpicked at night, fermented in half-ton bins and punched down by hand throughout fermentation. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged in French oak barrels (24% new) for 11 months.
Food Pairing Notes
A generous palate of velvety tannins lead to a dense mid-palate and a long, lingering finish. This Zinfandel is the perfect foil for lamb kabobs with roasted root vegetables.

This is a really fun wine. Great depth and complexity, with a smooth finish. Lush fruit up front and finishes dry and slightly smoky.
