"In the same ballpark, the 2016 Zinfandel Grist Vineyard comes from a site in the Dry Creek Valley. It’s a medium-bodied, fresh, seamless beauty that has classic, exotic even, aromas of strawberries, plums, blood orange, and incense. Like the other releases here, it’s impeccably balanced, has a seamless texture, and a great finish."

2016 Day Zinfandel Grist Vineyard
Day Zinfandel

Named for the old grist mill that was found on the property, Grist sits pretty at 1000 ft. elevation on Bradford Mountain in the Dry Creek Valley AVA. The site was originally planted 100 years ago, and has since been replanted in the early 1970s. Farming here is CCOF Organic.

The 58 acres under vine are head trained and cane pruned, and have spectacular views of the fog line by the Pacific Ocean. Iron-rich, red volcanic soil lead to low yields and concentrated wines. Peak temperatures in the summer time tend to be in the low to mid 80s, allowing for gentle and complete ripening without raisining.
