St Francis Old Vines Zinfandel 2009
|California, Sonoma County|
For over four decades, the wines of St. Francis Winery & Vineyards have reflected the finest mountain and valley vineyards to be found in Sonoma County. The winery’s award-winning varietals—from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and old vines Zinfandel to Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Chardonnay—showcase the rich terroir and varied microclimates special to this world-class wine-growing region.
Since our founding in 1971, St. Francis Winery & Vineyards has continually searched for vineyards with unique soil and climate profiles. St. Francis’s first winemaker, Tom Mackey, spent 25 years cultivating an in-depth understanding of every Sonoma appellation, which he used to acquire and develop the very best vineyards for the winery over the last several decades. That depth of connection to the appellations and vineyards of Sonoma County is carried forward today, with the next generation of winemaking under St. Francis winemaker Katie Madigan. - Extract from St Francis Winery's website
