Planted originally in the 1880's then added to in the 1920's by Felice Pagani, most of the original vines still produce beautiful fruit. Much of it is field-blended: Zinfandel, Alicante, Lenoir, Petite Sirah, Grand Noir and numerous others-like a big old vine salad of many heritage varieties, if you will. The 2016 vintage has beautiful dark color with aromas of blackberry, ripe plum, tobacco, fig, chocolate, prosciutto and toasted vanilla oak. Dark fruits meet red fruits (rhubarb and pomegranate) on the palate. An integrated package of fat tannins and pleasing taut acidity. This is a big structured Zinfandel to watch develop over months and years to come. 200 cases produced.
