2019 Battaglini Vineyard Zinfandel
The Battaglini Vineyard is located on the Santa Rosa plains of the Russian River Valley. Planted by cuttings originating from Tuscany Italy back in 1885, this vineyard is considered one of the oldest producing vineyards in the United States. Continuing with the SEAWOLF commitment, this vineyard is dry farmed and organically farmed; followed by native fermentations and gentle macerations. The wine was aged in 33% new French Remond barrels on the thick lees for 14 months, bottled both unfiltered and unfined. Deep magenta, with exotic bramble spice, tangerine, undertones of toasted walnut. On the palate, beautiful notes of roasted coffee and baked blackberry linger with tones of perfectly placed acidity. This wine has incredible depth and staying power. Drink this wine now through 2035.
