The defining flavor profile of our Zinfandel is seeped heavily from the limestone soil twelve miles from the Pacific Ocean. Overnight temperatures fluctuate as much as fifty degrees from daytime highs.
This in conjunction with rocky mountain earth restricting the depth of vine vigor results in lower yields and intensely concentrated grapes.
The steep slopes demand vertical trellises with 9x6 spacing for the vines which are further pruned and waters on a timetable to decrease yield and increase the energy of the vine to select small quantity clusters.
Block 2 Zinfandel is the result of deliberate design.
