Fanucchi Vineyards Old Vine Zinfandel 2005. Russian River Valley, Sonoma Country, California.
Vine Master / Wine Grower, Proprietor & All Hats: Peter Fanucchi
Old Vine Zinfandel - The 100+ year old Fanucchi-Wood Road Vineyard is located on about 20 acres along a slight rise bisected by Wood Road in the Russian River Valley wine growing region of Sonoma County California. It has been hand-tended by Peter Fanucchi for going on 40 vintage seasons. The Old Vine Zinfandel vineyard was planted over 100 years ago.
Judit and Corina taste a 2007 Bouchaine Carneros Pinot Noir and a Bouchaine Estate Pinot Noir from the Napa Valley and Carneros regions.
The Bouchaine 2007 Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir was blended from a selection of the most dramatic estate wine lots to yield the most expressive wine possible.
When you ask about the wine varietal that the Carneros appellation is most notable for, Pinot Noir invariably comes to mind.
