Scar of the Sea 2020 Zinfandel Lopez Vineyard Cucamonga Valley
Planted in 1918, 70 miles inland from Los Angeles and certified organic by CCOF, this vineyard is part of California history. Farmed today by the Galleano family, we are lucky to be able to make wine from this old vineyard. The vines are farmed without irrigation in granite rocks and sandy soil surrounded by freeways and track homes. This vineyard is one of the last reminders of an old California. The wine was picked right before the September heat wave. It was fermented with 50% wholecluster and took all harvest to finish. Aged for 8 months in old French oak barrels, it was bottled without fining or filtration.
