Stampede Zinfandel 2018




Lodi, CA





Production Notes

This Zinfandel was sourced from Stampede Vineyard, a pristinely farmed assortment of own-rooted vines planted in the 1940s in the Sierra Nevada mountains. The decomposed granite soils provide aromatic lift, while its wild west mystique is all thanks to the old rodeo grounds just over the fence. Stylistically, the wine is a nod to the great Paul Draper of Ridge Vineyards, a master of finesse and precision. Fermentations were conducted with native yeasts in a mix of open top and barrel fermenters (with a percentage of whole cluster), and then aged for 11 months neutral oak barrels.

Stampede Zinfandel - 2018
Lyrical, graceful and precise — here’s a modern Zinfandel with the satiny reverb of old vinyl.
