Our Home Ranch Zinfandel is built around the original vines planted by our founders in 1895. Five Generations and 125 years in the making, Home Ranch Zinfandel is a stunning expression of the heights to which Zinfandel can ascend.
Grapes were hand harvested and sorted before being gently destemmed and transferred in to small open-top fermentors. The fermentations were punched down by pneumatic plunger during maceration for 9-12 days before the free run wine was drained and transferred to barrel. The wines completed malolactic fermentation in barrel. Aged 15 months in 15% New French oak barrels, 85% neutral French and American oak barrels. Racked twice prior to blending and once to bottle.
