Boatman

History
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.

Location
South of the town of Geyserville in Alexander Valley, Sonoma County.

Age of Vines
Planted in the early 1970’s.

Soils
Los Gatos-Josephine mélange, gravelly clay loam.

Training & Yields
Head trained (no trellis), spur pruned. 2.52 tons per acre.
