Jack London Vineyard Sonoma Mountain Zinfandel 2017
This vineyard is long recognized for its prized red wines and its Zinfandel is no exception. Since our first vintage in 1987, the Jack London Zinfandel has produced flavorful wines with excellent fruit and well-rounded tannins. Located on Sonoma Mountain with a southeasterly exposure, the climatic conditions and long, cool growing season of this viticultural area create complexity and balance in the fruit. The influence of the vineyard’s red volcanic soil and the fruity characteristics of the grapes combine to produce an outstanding, very distinctive Zinfandel.
The 2017 vintage had an earlier than usual bud break and the warm spring temperatures greatly accelerated the harvest date. Harvest began on September 25th with the grapes located at the highest part of the vineyard and was completed on October 21st. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel, and then aged in French and American oak barrels for 16 months.
