2010 Buchignani Ranch Zinfandel
80% zinfandel, 20% carignane

Winemaker Tasting Notes
Aromas of blackberry, licorice, leather and toasty oak. Ruby red in color with lively acid, fig, black cherry and tightly woven tannins on the finish.

Most of this twenty-five-acre vineyard is planted to carignane, but it includes several acres of zinfandel on a rocky knoll near the house. Stan Buchignani is the third generation of his family to tend these beautiful sixty- to seventy-five-year-old vines. Anticipating rain on September 22, Stan began picking on the eighteenth. Those grapes were not yet fully ripe, so we held off, and picked the rest ten days later. After natural primary and secondary fermentations, the wine was racked to american oak. To further soften the zinfandel's firm tannins, more carignane was added during aging. Full-flavored, but elegant in structure, this wine will be enjoyable over the next five to seven years. JO (9/11)
