Venge Signal Fire Vineyard Estate Zinfandel 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Calistoga|
This vineyard sits in the center crown of Northern Calistoga and is a testament to the historical significance of Heritage Zinfandel vines that were once planted prolifically throughout California. Planted in the early 1900s, the old vines on this property are dry farmed and head trained in the old-school style, producing just under one ton to the acre.
Our 2019 vintage of this wine establishes itself smack in the middle of big, bold, and balanced. Eight acres of gnarly old-vine Zinfandel from our newest estate produces this testament to Napa Valley history. Impenetrable, glass coating color leads fans of Zinfandel to loads of blackberries, white pepper spice, sweet honeysuckle, crushed blue herbs, and a very full, viscous, and lengthy finish. This is approachable upon release and will age when cellared correctly, for 5 to 8 years.
