BROC CELLARS | 2015 Vine Starr Zinfandel

Black and white peppercorn, raspberry, blackberry

VARIETAL: 100% Zinfandel

VINEYARD: Arrowhead Vineyard + Buck Hill Vineyard

LOCATION: Sonoma Valley (Arrowhead) + Russian River (Buck Hill)

ALCOHOL: 13.5%


WINEMAKER’S NOTES: Slightly darker and richer than the previous
year, with more pepper components. Reminiscent of wines from
where the Rhone Valley and Beaujolais meet. Picked at low brix to
highlight acidity and the fruit. 100% de-stemmed and fermented in
stainless and concrete tanks. Aged for 10 months in neutral French
oak barrels.

VITICULTURAL AREA: 50/50 blend of Buck Hill and Arrowhead
Vineyards. Both of these vineyards are non-certified organic, using no
chemicals or sulfur in the vineyards. They grow in volcanic soil.
All of our wines are made naturally, meaning no use of inoculated yeasts
or bacteria. We use only native yeast to spark fermentation. We do not add
any powdered tannins or enzymes. A minimal dose of S02 is added 4
weeks before bottling to some wines.
