Because Mendocino County possesses so many different microclimates and terroir variations, the virtue of our Director’s wines lies in the blending process. Our Zinfandel is made from several clonal selections grown in select vineyards that have distinctly different soil compositions, elevations, and climates. The result is dozens of lots, each with fruit that has its own personality and flavor profile. Each lot then undergoes a unique barrel regimen designed to enhance the natural characteristics of the selection during its development and aging. These lots are then blended in many trials until a perfect harmony of flavors is achieved with our master blend.
