2021 Vapor Trail Zinfandel
Single Vineyard Series
Vista Cecilia Vineyards
45% New French and American Oak barrels
A big and bold wine. It’s jammy, with aromas of mixed berries cobbler, graham crackers and raisin. All together these flavors create a full bodied and sophisticated wine with an intense and persistent finish.
The grapes that went into this wine came from the Vista Cecila vineyard in Amador County and were farmed by Josh Lyman. The vines are head trained and the soil is ‘Sierra loam’. Elevation is approximately 1,430 ft. Soil is red, clay, loamy and slightly rocky. Warm days and cool nights are typical of this region during the growing season.
Grapes were hand-picked in the morning and gently sorted and transferred back to bins for cold soak. Must was inoculated and fermentation was done in temperature controlled stainless steel tank and was pumped over in regular intervals. Aged in 45% new oak barrels (both French and American), the balance was done in neutral oak.
