Sineann's Peter Rosback, known for his absolutely "out of the ballpark" wines, hits another home run with the 2007 Old Vine Zinfandel. Made from a tiny vineyard in The Dalles, the vines are nearly 100 years old and come from the oldest producing vineyard in the Pacific Northwest.

Zinfandel from Oregon may be unusual but this wine defies the norm every year. Peter Rosback is known for his over-the-top rich, dense, monster style reds, and this is always his biggest wine of the vintage, the flagship wine for Sineann.

The 2007 Sineann Old Vine Zinfandel enters your mouth like plush velvet. Huge toasted espresso bean and cocoa flavors combine with mysterious dark jammy sweet berries. All are followed by a finish that just takes over! Layers and layers of fruit hit your nose and palate with incredible depth. As always, it’s very aromatic with black fruit, spice notes, a little cedar and a touch of leather dancing in the background.

Winemaker Peter Rosback
describes the 2007 Old Vine Zinfandel:
"Our flagship wine. It is the oldest producing vineyard in the Pacific Northwest at nearly 100 years. Every year it makes either the best wine we put out or very close to it. In 2007 we picked at 25+ Brix, cropping at under two tons per acre. The wine is dark and immensely concentrated. To those who wonder if Zinfandel can be ripened outside of California, we offer this example. Not only does Zinfandel ripen on this old vineyard, it maintains balancing acidity to produce a wine that ages beautifully."
