2013 La Promessa Zinfandel
« Back to Dry Creek Wines
The name of this wine -- and the vineyard from which it is sourced -- means “The Promise” in Italian. It was chosen for the promise I made to my father to continue our family’s long winemaking tradition in California. The vineyard is located next to our winery on a rocky, southwest-facing slope that is arguable in the warmest part of the Dry Creek Valley. Planted in 1999, the vineyard is still relatively young; 2011 marks our sixth vintage of this wine.
