I learned today from the winemaker at Adobe Road, that the 2015 Famighetti Vineyard Zinfandel received a 91 point rating from Wine Spectator. This was great news. The 2015 harvest was our first. It was the last year of a 5 year drought in Northern California. The temporary winemaker that year had us drop a significant amount of fruit. Then, we dealt with the dry weather and heat just before harvest. That year we had 15 days over 100 degrees F and another 4 days above 105 F. A good percentage of the grapes were at the very early stages of shriveling when we picked them on September 4th and 5th. Although yields were down, I thought this might make an excellent wine. It seems to be the case! I have had 4 bottles already and it is very good! Anyone interested in acquiring some of this wine can order some from the winery by clicking the button below.
