Overview

Our Federalist Dry Creek Zinfandel is hand-crafted to bring out the true individuality of this hearty, decidedly American grape. Our vineyard in the Southern edge of Dry Creek is just a mile from the Russian River with cool and foggy conditions until mid morning, keeping the fruit from over-ripening and allowing for a longer growing season. This produces more mature fruit, and results in rich, full-bodied flavor characteristics.

Aging

The separate blocks were blended post malolactic fermentation and aged for 16 months in 20% new oak barrels.

Fermentation

Six blocks were fermented separately to preserve ideal characteristics of each. Each block spends an average of 12 days on the skins.
