Dancing Lady - Old Vine Zinfandel - Alexander Valley
Overview: Shortly after the Civil War, our great-grandfather, Francesco Passalacqua, arrived in California from San Lorenzo della Costa, Italy. Like many Italian immigrants during this time, Francesco settled in Sonoma County hoping to achieve the American Dream. He financially supported himself by selling produce from a vegetable wagon. By 1896 Francesco had earned enough money to purchase a ranch in Alexander Valley for the cost of ten gold coins. Francesco and his son Emil, our grandfather, planted Zinfandel grapes on this ranch. Emil used the grapes from those vines to make wine at the then family owned Fitch Mountain Winery and Oliveto Winery.
Tasting Notes: Cherry, strawberry, plum. Hints of vanilla and dark chocolate.
Format/ABV: 750 ml/14.5%
