Tasting Notes
Our 2017 Pritchett Peaks Zinfandel is just starting to reveal its beautiful layers of aromas: fresh wild blackberries, perfumed black cherry and seductive toasted baking spices. Fresh black fruit and black tea leaf give way to firm and chewy tannins with traces of sweet earth and shaved cardamom. Powerful yet wonderfully balanced, this wine would greatly benefit from at least one additional year in the bottle. Enjoy it over the next 8-10 years.
Vineyard Notes
This property borders our original 1868 homesteaded land and we first planted grapes here in 2008. Rising to approximately 1,250 feet in elevation, this vineyard is at the top of the Rockpile ridgeline and offers a completely different terroir than our other Rockpile Zinfandel sites. Because of its eastern sun exposure, this block only gets direct sunlight early in the morning, and its nearly 30-degree slope provides optimal drainage and wind exposure.
Winemaker Notes
The Pritchett Peaks are the mountains that form the eastern border of Lake Sonoma and are named after the Pritchett family, some of the earliest Rockpile area settlers.
