Bucklin Zinfandel Bambino 2009

Bucklin Zinfandel Bambino 2009

Sku: 032419

Established in 1852 near the town of Glen Ellen in Sonoma Valley, our families' Old Hill Ranch is one of California’s oldest vineyards. This wine is produced from a certified organic, dry-farmed field-blend planted on Old Hill in the 1880’s. The vineyard is a mosaic of over two dozen grape varieties — principally Zinfandel, but also Grenache, Alicante Bouchet, Petite Sirah, Mourvedre, Syrah, Carignane, and Tempranillo, to name a few. All are blended together in this wine.

Tasting notes
The color of our signature Old Hill Zin is dark purple and the aromas are wonderfully complex. There is an impressive array of sweet cherries, blackberries, plums and earthy "old hill" spice that lend structure and depth. The French oak contributes toast and vanilla aromas while enhancing the ripe grape tannins on the finish. Follow the evolution of this wine in your glass as it opens up or decant if you are in a hurry. The wine will reach its peak maturity in 7-10 years.
