Winemaker Notes
This single-vineyard bottling is truly representative of our home ranch. Half of the fruit comes from our dry-farmed hills, while the other half of the fruit is a barrel selection from our trellised vines. One can look at this wine as a combination of 2016 Mustang Springs Zinfandel and 2016 30th Anniversary Zinfandel. Each individual block and variety were harvested at optimal ripeness over a four week period. As the fruit was received, it was gentle destemmed, fermented to dryness and aged for 18 months in a combination of French, American, and Hungarian oak barrels.
