Girard 'Old Vine' Napa Valley Zinfandel 2011
86% Zinfandel, 9% Charbono and 5% Mourvedre. The grapes were hand-sorted and crushed to stainless steel fermenters. Pump overs were done as gently as possible to avoid undesirable harsh tannin extraction. Pressed at dryness to 80% French and 20% American oak with a composition of 35% new oak for both barrel types.
