2014 was our first release from the Boatman Ranch, located in Sonoma County between our Lytton Springs and Geyserville vineyards. In the early 1970s, Tim Boatman planted fifteen acres of zinfandel on the steep hillsides that surround his house. The rocky, east-facing terraces are ideal for growing intense, concentrated fruit.
