" The Dalraddy Vineyard is a perfect zinfandel site in the Chiles Valley within the Napa Valley appellation. The old, head pruned vines have good sun exposure, and are protected from the hot afternoon sun by the hills that define this small valley. In exceptional vintages, we select some of the best barrels from this vineyard to produce our most dense and concentrated zinfandel. The 1999 Dalraddy Vineyard Zinfandel shows dense, black, concentrated fruit with ripe, jammy, blackberry, and dark plum fruit flavors. The soft, well-structured tannins and mellow oak undertones balance the concentrated fruit giving the wine the richness, power and concentration we expect from this vineyard. Only 950 cases were produced."
