2018 Director’s Cut Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

There are two techniques for growing Zinfandel in Dry Creek Valley. One consists of traditional farming practices and includes the dry farming of mature wines that are head-trained, spur-pruned, and severely thinned in the spring to produce low yields. The other method utilizes bilateral cordon spur pruning, on-wire trellising, drop irrigation, and carefully manicured canopies. We source our Zinfandel from vineyards that are farmed both ways. The combination produces an illustrious, multi-dimensional wine, showcasing all that Zinfandel has to offer.
