The harvest of 2017 was a winemaker’s dream, following replenishing, drought-ending rains and a long and even growing season. Picking began on September 6 at our estate Pick and Shovel Zinfandel block and adjacent hillside Petite Sirah block. We moved into our estate Syrah vineyard on the morning of September 12th, and we concluded picking with our estate Skid Row Malbec on September 17. The grapes were picked at full maturity, de-stemmed and gently transferred into fermenters with almost 100% whole berries. They soaked at a cool temperature for four to seven days, at which point native yeast fermentation began. Post-fermentation maceration with heat followed for approximately one week. The wine was aged in both Burgundian and American four-year-seasoned oak (5% new) for 18 months, which included five months of native malolactic fermentation. The blend was assembled and bottled in June of 2019. Inky purple in color, this is a sensational vintage of our Old Soul Red, with blackberry cobbler and savory notes on the nose. The palate is rich and dense, with ripe tannins that wrap around the core of fruit and lead to a long juicy finish. The hallmark of a thoughtfully articulated blend is its versatility.
