2011 Starry Night Old Vine Zinfandel

Starry Night Winery
2011 Old Vine Zinfandel
Nervo Station Vineyard, Alexander Valley

Nervo Station Vineyard, located on a hillside in the western part of Alexander Valley, has two blocks of Zinfandel planted in 1896 and one block planted in 1934. As is typical of older Zinfandel Vineyards, there are numerous other varietals inter-planted in the vineyard including Petite Sirah, Carignane and Mataro among others. Farmed by the Nervo family for three generations, these head pruned vines produce a very limited crop that results in concentrated and complex flavors and aromas of ripe plum, blackberry and cassis, with hints of anise, exotic spices and white pepper.

About The Winery...

This year Starry Night Winery celebrates its 17th anniversary as a bonded winery. The story of how they came into existence starts many years earlier when Wayne Hansen, Bruce Walker, Mike Miller and Skip Granger started making wine. Their motivation for this came from a shared life long passion for wine and an increasing disdain for the over priced and often mass-produced wines found in the market.
