?In 1970, San Francisco firefighter Cecil De Loach, and his wife Christine, purchased the prized Barbieri Ranch in Russian River Valley?s coveted Olivet Road district. Both came armed with advanced degrees in anthropology but no background in farming or grape growing. That said, they had long dreamt of finding land their family could own and work together. For his part, Louis Barbieri, whose father Itilo planted the vineyard in 1905, was gratified to pass the vineyard on to a family committed to honoring its past, and stewarding its future.

This dark cherry-magenta Zinfandel displays aromas of ripeberries, currants, red fruit and oak with hints of cinnamon. Thebouquet is complemented by a full palate of blackberry, anise, and pomegranate flavors with a long bramble and clove finish. This multilayered and complex wine is rich and full; a fine representation of Zin from the Russian River Valley that wonderfully compliments anything off the grill and has excellent aging potential.
