2018 MIKE AND MOLLY R.W. MOORE VINEYARD ZINFANDEL
The only thing deeper than the root systems of the ancient Zinfandel vines at R.W. Moore Vineyard is Mike and Molly Hendry’s ties to Napa Valley. Mike’s grandparents purchased a vineyard at the base of Mount Veeder in 1939, where the Hendry Winery is today. Molly’s uncle Bill owns the historic R.W. Moore Vineyard in Coombsville’s center, planted in 1905 and part of the U.C. Davis Heritage Vineyard project, where genetic material is studied and preserved.
This field blend of approximately 95% Zinfandel, 1% Petite Sirah, 1% Carignan, 1% Mourvedre, and 2% Mourtaou is grown in Coombsville, where the cooling influences of the Pacific Ocean keep the grapes from developing overripe, jammy fruit characteristics, producing a more balanced Zinfandel. The resulting wine is elegantly styled and profoundly complex, and at $40, the value is memorable.
