St. Francis Winery
Zinfandel

2005 Zinfandel
Dry Creek Valley

The family owned Zichichi Vineyard, located in the Dry Creek Valley, is often referred to as a “Zinfandel paradise.” Grapes grown in this northern Sonoma County appellation benefit from long warm days followed by cool nights, producing fruit of unique quality and intensity. This old vine vineyard dates back to the 1930s and is an ancestral field blend of Zinfandel, Carignane and Petite Sirah. The 2005 harvest from the Zichichi family vineyard was hand-picked at 24.8 Brix, fermented on the skins to enhance color and flavor extraction, then aged 14 months in American oak. Deeply colored and ladened with flavors reminiscent of soft plumy fruit, boysenberry, currant and smoke, this full bodied wine finishes with a spicy edge and a sensual richness that Zin lovers won’t want to miss. Made in limited quantity, this single vineyard wine is available only at the Winery.
