2014 Tin Barn Vineyards Zinfandel "Gilsson Vineyard"
Russian River Valley, California
100% Zinfandel. Single vineyard. On the eastern edge of the Russian River Valley lies a stretch of sandy loam soil, which was planted with Zinfandel back in 1950. Aged 19 months in American oak barrels, 20% new. Production of 896 cases. Richly developed flavors of dark chocolate, pretzel, leather and cedar with dried herb mark this big darkly concentrated wine, that is substantial in tannin. When Michael Lancaster, winemaker and co-owner of Tin Barn Vineyards in Sonoma CA, fled the corporate world, he did so on two wheels, pedaling through some of the world’s most fabled wine regions. In 2000, Michael formed a partnership with friends and launched Tin Barn Vineyards. Tin Barn Vineyards produces single vineyard wines highlighting the true character of Sonoma County. Today, he makes his home in a different sort of “tin barn”— a warehouse in rural Sonoma housing the cellar and tasting room.
