2013 Grenache 1942 Block
This 1.1-acre old vine vineyard was planted in 1942 to Zinfandel - at least that is what was ordered from the nursery. After its first two years of production, its lighter-colored clusters didn't look like Zin. Eventually, it was figured out that the Auradou family had accidentally planted Grenache on this prime hillside location on the Dry Creek bench. This tiny plot of old vine Grenache provides an opportunity to produce wine from exceptional fruit.
