We keep going back to the Soucie Vineyard for our Zinfandel because it consistently produces BIG BOLD fruit that we love. We blended 2.5% Petite Sirah into this Zinfandel to give it "a base note." We call that the "subwoofer effect."
We keep going back to the Jessie's Grove Vineyard for our Carignane. These ancient vines are 120 years old; planted in 1900. Carignane is a late budding and ripening grape which requires a warm climate (e.g., Lodi, CA) in order to achieve full ripeness.
