Scar of the Sea 2021 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.
This wine was picked on August 6th, fermented with native yeast and with 50% whole cluster. The grapes were basket pressed at dryness and then aged for 8 months in old French oak barrels before being bottled with minimal SO2 and without filtration.
