The Korte Ranch is a classic old St. Helena Vineyard, planted around 1910, that is over 100 Years ago! Korte Ranch is head-trained and dry-farmed planted on the St. George rootstock and produces wonderful Zinfandel from the gnarly old vines.
The 2010 Korte Ranch Zinfandel has aromas of blackberries, cherries, wild mushrooms and with sage hints of vanilla and cedar. It is full bodied with flavors of berries, dark cherries and cinnamon that carry throughout the long finish.
