The grapes were harvested and field-sorted by hand beginning with zinfandel on September 18, 2007, and ending with Mendocino coast Syrah on November 2, 2007 at an average of 25.5 brix. Forty-five percent of the grapes, farmed organically, were sourced from the Saracina Ranch; the balance were sourced from five other low-yield, organically or sustainably farmed Mendocino County vineyards ranging in age from 12 to 109 years, including the oldest syrah planting in the U.S.
Dark ruby in color, this wine’s nose reveals ripe red raspberry and blackberry fruit, sandalwood, anise seed and a hint of white pepper. The flavors are jammy, ripe and expressive, and the tannins are creamy, supple and well integrated. Well proportioned and balanced, juicy but not overripe, this vintage continues to deliver the Old Soul Red message of imminent, satisfying drinkability on release without sacrificing the merits of aging potential.
