Region: Central Coast
The Zinfandel for this wine comes from Komrosky Vineyard at the base of the Southern Santa Cruz Mountains in the Santa Clara Valley, which recently converted to all organic farming practices. Hot days are met by cool evening breezes. The soils at Komrosky vineyard include basalt, chalk, and serpentine. Scattered throughout the vineyard there are large, turquoise serpentine stones.
Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts. This wine was bottled “sans soufre” (without sulfur).
Aromas of watermelon, strawberry guava, and lemon rind. The palate presents a softness in the fruit that is framed by a mouth-puckering acidity.
