EXTRAORDINARY “ANCIENT VINE” ZINFANDEL

 

Two friends, Founders – David Huang and Clint Holdsworth, crossed paths in Napa, but come very different back grounds.  David studied biomedical engineering at Harvard. he had to decide between going to UC Davis to study winemaking and going to medical school. He chose medical school and went to the Uniformed Services University. He then served in the Air Force for 15 years, deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan to care for our troops.  After his service he relocated to Napa and enrolled in Napa College to study Enology.  It is here that he met his partner Clint who after a career with Genetech had relocated to California from Illinois… The rest as they say is history.

The 2014 Ancient Vines bottling from the Teldeschi Vineyard showcases the rich fruit and flavor concentration associated with vines of this age and pedigree.  Building on the style we have demonstrated in previous vintages, this wine shows vibrant aromas and fresh flavors of raspberry, blackberry, black cherry, and blueberry, with slight notes of licorice, tar and vanilla.  The finish on this wine is not bashful, filled with spice and black pepper that integrate with and complement the wine’s tannins. The wine’s bold flavors and complex, yet balanced structure allows it to pair nicely with a broad range of food styles, including pasta dishes, grilled meats and vegetables, and barbecue.
