2014 Zinfandel, HB Family Vineyard, Sonoma Valley

34.00

HB Family Vineyard is a tiny 1.5 acre vineyard located in the heart of Sonoma Valley on Old Winery Road. This historic land is the site of the iconic Haraszthy Vineyard where Agoston Haraszthy, often referred to as the "Father of California Viticulture" or the "Father of Modern Winemaking in California", planted his first California vineyard in 1856. Haraszthy was the founder of the Buena Vista Vineyard in Sonoma, California, and an early and important writer on California wine and viticulture. This pioneer winemaker understood the merits of this loamy and cobbled soil, locally known as huachica, and the micro-climate of this cool pocket nestled in the Sonoma Valley AVA (American Viticulture Area).

The grapes were harvested on October 20th. Native yeast fermentation occurred in stainless steel, open top tanks. Gentle handling and extended aging for 36 months in French oak barrels makes the HB Family Vineyard Zinfandel, truly unique and very special. It is elegant and refined. It has a well-balanced acidity, with hints of cherry, marzipan, vanilla and black pepper.

Eleven barrels produced.
