LOCATION

Chalk Hill AVA, Sonoma County

HISTORY

This old vine vineyard, owned by Jim Metcalfe, is farmed by Gary Blasi. Poor fruit set and very warm weather leading up to harvest reduced yields. However, quality and concentration of the remaining crop was excellent. Aging in American oak adds spice to the wine’s rich, elegant fruit. This fine zinfandel is enjoyable as a young wine and will be at its best over the next five to six years.


PAIRINGS

Food

Blasi’s delicate fruit and bright acidity pair perfectly with our recipe for Turkey Burgers with Apple Kimchi and Ginger Mayo, a fun burger option with a spicy twist!
