2015 was our first vintage of Blasi Zinfandel. Gary Blasi has been farming these old vines for over forty years on a handshake agreement with owner Jim Metcalfe. This is the first time that wine from this hidden treasure of a vineyard has been bottled separately with Gary’s name on the label.
Chalk Hill AVA, just outside Windsor city limits
Zinfandel, 3 acres, and a small amount of petite sirah, peloursin, and other varieties scattered throughout.
Arbuckle deep gravelly clay loam
Head trained, (no trellis) spur pruned. Three tons per acre.
