Description

Our El Dorado Zinfandel comes from two distinct parcels of our Estate vineyards.  The older Fossati block is planted with our “Old Clone” Zinfandel variety, which was grafted with cuttings taken from vines found on the property when it was purchased in 1972.  Planted by the family of the original property settlers, these vines likely dated back to the late 19th century, and always contribute a uniquely earthy, chocolatey aroma. The newer estate plots are planted with more recent clonal selections that provide a more overtly fruit-forward aroma of ripe red fruits. These distinct lots are blended together to yield a Zin with an alluring, red-fruit dominant aroma.
