Our Zingaro is made from a blend of Zinfandel fruit sourced from the cool-climate Russian River Valley AVA in northern Sonoma County, along with a touch of our own Primitivo grown in front of the Castello. The cool climate of Russian River Valley allows for slow ripening of the fruit, resulting in full flavor development and increased complexity, while the old vines produce fewer, more concentrated clusters, which add an extra layer of depth and complexity to the finished wine.
The 2015 vintage was of high quality, but very low yields in many varieties. The harvest will also be remembered as one of the earliest ever. The relatively dry and warm winter resulted in small clusters of grapes with highly concentrated flavors yielding wines of deep, rich flavors and excellent quality with deep color and lovely fruit aromas. - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
