Meadowhawk Contra Costa County Zinfandel 2018

The Ancient Vines Zinfandel draws primarily from a wide
selection of our oldest, most historic and shyest-bearing Zinfandel
blocks in Contra Costa County. Grapes were planted by Italian and
Portuguese immigrants in the sandy, phylloxera-resistant soils of
Oakley, California more than 100 years ago. These ancient,
dry-farmed vineyards consistently produce fruit of stunning
concentration. The lots that we hand-selected are the result of
sensitive farming practices, the singular Oakley terroir and a unique
cooling band of air that flows from the San Joaquin and
Sacramento Rivers.

The wines were pressed off their skins at dryness and racked
gently before being laid down to a complement of American oak
cooperage for 7 months approximately 35% new.



Meadowhawk Old Vine Zinfandel shows wonderful, fat
strawberry, with coffee and chocolate characters. Ripe fruit and
soft tannins make this a mouth-coating rich vintage. Aging in new
and used wood has lent this wine a subtle vanilla quality that nicely
complements the explosive fruit notes. Accompany this wine with slow cooked BBQ pork, chicken mole or
spinach mushroom casserole.
