Product Details

This is our flagship estate wine from Kuchan Estate Lepi Bregi vineyard in Santa Clara Valley, most closely resembling Ridge Geyserville Zinfandel. The grapevines have been planted in 1925, almost a century ago. They are gnarly, twisted and low producing but render amazing fruit with deep aromas and more evenly ripened clusters than traditional zinfandel. Lepi Bregi vineyard is a classic turn of the 19th century blend with zinfandel, grenache and carignane.

2017 was a tough year. Dry farmed vineyard struggled for the last two weeks before harvest with temperatures spiking to 117 deg Fahrenheit. As a result, the yield was less than 50% but the aromas are insanely rich and complex with bountiful acidity and tannins, which will age well for another 3-5 years.
