2014 Perkins Harter “The Weight” Old Vine Zinfandel
Some of the best grapes from Dry Creek Valley have been assembled to create this wine. The Zinfandel grapes are sourced from the ancient vines in the historic R. Teldeschi Vineyard, planted on the classic red conglomerate benchlands of Dry Creek Valley in 1889. As with many of the oldest Zinfandel vineyards, these head-pruned vines are not uniform, but actually hold a selection massale in their midst – including a few white grape vines. Petite Sirah from the Teldeschi Vineyard’s 75 year-old vines, along with Syrah from the granitic hillside of the Vineyard of Pasterick, are co-fermented with grapes from the Zinfandel old vines for greater complexity and depth.
All of the grapes comprising this wine were harvested on September 12, 2014 and blended at crushing. After a three-day cold soak, fermentation began and lasted for sixteen days. On September 24th, the wine was pressed off and barreled down for aging in a cave with an ambient temperature of 60°F. Following 20 months of élevage in neutral French oak barrels, the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered on May 10, 2016.
The third vintage of “The Weight” is the most velvety and feminine wine produced of the four vintages this wine was made. Mouthwatering layers of tart cranberries, orange peel and boysenberries give way to savory notes of bay leaf, white pepper and cardamom. Aromas of white orchids, stone dust and dry river rocks return in this vintage and provide a warming sense of home. This is a velvety, spicy and elegant Zinfandel that is approachable now, but is also capable of aging beautifully for several years.
Blend: 80% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah, 5% Syrah. ABV: 15%
