Planted as field blends, Zinfandel is the primary varietal planted, but not the only varietal. Petite Sirah, Carignane, Alicante Bouchet and even some native vines can also be found in some of the vineyards. The vineyards are harvested separately and remain separate throughout fermentation and aging until the final Forgotten Vines blend is crafted.
Following careful cluster sorting, the must is fermented in a combination of small French oak vats and stainless steel tanks. The wine is gently pressed off and aged in barrel, and the components are hand selected by our winemakers for exceptional richness, complexity and old-vine character.
