2014 1910 Block Zinfandel
Our estate was first planted to grapes in 1910. The original Del Fava family homestead still stands, and nearly 5 acres of the original vines are still in production--truly the crown jewels of the property. Interplanted with mixed black varieties: Peloursin, Negrette, Alicante Bouchet, Syrah, and Petite Sirah. We co-pick and co-ferment the entire block, allowing each variety to define its own role in the resulting wine. 1910 Block is more than an extraordinary wine. It is a rare piece of California history.
