Details

The 2004 August Briggs Napa Valley Zinfandel is our tenth vintage of this wine since starting our company in 1995. This wine is a combination of two vineyards, the first Lavisi Vineyard planted in 1908, located two hundred yards east of the winery. The second vineyard, the Frediani Vineyard which was planted in the 1940s and is located just a quarter mile south of the winery on the Silverado Trail. Both vineyards are head trained and non-irrigated, thus yielding one to two tons per acre depending on the vintage. Dark ruby in color with aromas of blackberry, black cherry, coco, tobacco, and plum. This is what I call and old style Zinfandel with a ripe core of fruit and a good backbone of tannin (a zinfandel that matches well with bolder food dishes). The grapes for this wine were picked at about 26 brix, destemed into a small opentopped fermenter, and punched down by hand. After completion of fermentation the wine was drained, pressed, and inoculated with a malo-lactic culture. Completion of ML was allowed while aging in 35% new Demptos American oak barrels and 65% two and three year old French barrels. Barrel aging lasted 15 months prior to bottling without filtration (570 cases produced).
