2010 Single Vineyard Two Bud Zinfandel

 

The grapes used to produce our 2010 Shannon Ridge Lake County Two Bud Zinfandel were picked from a special block on our Caldwell Ranch where Clay Shannon first taught his son Ivan how to prune vines. The fruit was picked at the peak of ripeness and aged in 70% new American oak barrels and 30% French oak.
