Zinfandel Old Hill Ranch "Bambino"
"Bambino" comes from a 10-acre block planted on Old Hill in 1998. This young-vine field blend is patterned after the ancient vine field-blend for which Old Hill is known. 78% Zinfandel, 11% Petite Sirah, 5% Alicante Bouchet, 6% Syrah, Grenache and Carignane.
Fermentations are relatively long - a result of the use of indigenous yeast without any nutrient additions. Pressing occurred after 15 days on the skins.
