The Old Vine Zinfandel is shaping up to be the best of my 2013 wines: Great color, clarity and taste.

The grapes for this wine were collected from an old vineyard in Etiwanda, CA that was about to be plowed under for new development. We got the chance to harvest some wonderful fruit and rescue as many vines as possible (I have 10 of them in my yard now).

From this morning’s racking session.
