The quality of the fruit comes from the mature, deeper roots accessing underground aquifers in the dry-farmed, hot weather district of Calistoga. Old Vines ripen earlier, so there is less chance of scorch due to excessive heat or mildew from fall rains. Now releasing our 25th vintage with grapes primarily sourced from the Frediani Vineyard, Saddleback is happy to list once again: Old Vine Zinfandel.

Challenges in 2017 included a lower yield, so the addition of 5% Petit Sirah is new in this vintage, adding even more depth of flavor. As an expression of the Zin varietal, on the nose find aromas of black cherry, violets, cedar and cracked black pepper. On the palate, the full body gives way to blackberry compote, dark chocolate, caraway, pecan, with a black and white pepper finish.
