Shepherded by a family heritage of over six generations of grape farming – it is a firm belief at Gamba that wines are made in the vineyard. Every Gamba made wine is an individual expression of the vineyard with each unique vintage. The limited production, handcrafted wines are a tribute to the art of farming, as much as they are to generations of old world, traditional winemaking. As the few remaining old vine vineyards slowly continue to disappear from the landscape, Gamba holds dear and strives to preserve what is quickly becoming a limited commodity – truly Old Vine Zinfandel.

The 2021 Starr Road Ranch Old Vine Zinfandel showcases aromas of raspberry preserves, cedar, and maple. Upon entry, the wine is youthful but satisfying, with supple flavors of wild berries, currant, and plum complemented by savory allspice. Briary black raspberry and black tea notes give way to a bold yet supple, leathery tannin and a powerful, lingering finish. Pair with short ribs, braised pork belly, or your favorite savory dish.

Foggy mornings, warm days and cool nights provide ideal growing conditions at this exceptional vineyard site in the Russian River Valley. This treasured old vine vineyard consistently produces intense benchmark wines, bold yet
refined in character, year after year, praised and sought after by wine lovers, and collectors alike.
Winemaker Notes: “Crafted from small blocks on the Starr Road Ranch, the lots are fermented separately and masterfully blended. Our final blend is thoughtfully assembled offering bright, rich aromatics and bold fruit, layered with hints of oak seasoning and always deftly balanced. Our wines are largely fermented with naturally occurring yeasts. The wines are aged 16-18 months in French and American oak cooperage, and clarified by racking prior to bottling.”
