En Cavale North Coast Zinfandel


We love zinfandel - if there’s any one grape that translates all the California sunshine and spunky spirit, then here she is. The vineyard is tucked in the folded eastern foothills of the Vaca Mountains, not far from a billboard telling passing motorists that they’ve reached “Suisun Valley - Napa’s Backside”. Indeed, it’s a short jaunt to the I-80 and growing suburbs of Fairfield, but here it feels like old timey California, all country ranches and rolling pastures dotted with coastal oak trees. The Delta isn’t far away, and you can trace the runoff through the north-south running valleys, an easy way to imagine the buildup of eroded volcanic matter, clay and bits of serpentine in the local soils.
