2016 St. Amant Marian's Vineyard Zinfandel
In 2013 Marian’s Vineyard celebrated her 112th birthday by producing nearly 3.5 tons to the acre across her 8.3 acres. This is quite a remarkable feat for such an old vineyard, and a testament to why it’s still farmed today. Contrast that with 2010 and 2011 where the vineyard only eeked out 1 ½ - 2 tons/acre. Most growers would consider 4 tons/acre a paltry crop, but for St.Amant the excepional quality they get from his vineyard makes it worth it. The resulting wine is a classic Marian’s Vineyard Zin – big and bold, with concentrated fruit flavors, and richness that lingers on the palate. As always, it’s one mother of a Zin.
