Remember that time you traveled somewhere and enjoyed that adventure, that experience, that night with those friends that was so unbelievable? And you’ve recounted it to all of your family and all of your friends to the point that they feel like they were there with you? And even now, you hear a song, smell a smell, see a picture, meet up with those friends that were there and it takes you back to that adventure; to that night. Meet the Resident. A wine from here in the New World that takes you there to the Old World.
The fruit for this wine comes from three CCOF-certified vineyards near Mendocino County. The vines are all at least 20 years old and some are more than 30-years-old. The grapes were hand-harvested, crushed, de-stemmed and fermented slowly in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the part of the wine aged in neutral French oak barrels and part of it aged in stainless steel for 18 months. The wine is unfined but was lightly filtered before bottling."
Did You Know? Zinfandel originated in the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia.
