Mancini Vineyard was planted in 1922 in the old world method of mixed planting. There is Zinfandel, Carignane, Alicante Bouschet, Petite Sirah, Grand Noir, Grenache, Mataro, and other unidentified vines in this amazing old vineyard. A true field blend, Mancini Zin is as interesting and complex to taste as the vineyard itself!

Winemaker Notes:

Very complexly layered black fruits, deep and dark and brooding. Freshly ground black pepper, augmented by full spice cupboard.  Cedary, creamy oak, a bit of vanilla, a touch of aromatic blueberry. Rich in mouth, good structure for aging, a bit chewy in its youth.
