Vineyard Notes
Zenith is centrally located in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA 11 miles NW of Salem, Oregon. The grapes for this wine come from two older blocks planted on a gentle hillside on old sedimentary soil.
Winemaker Notes
Vintage Notes: 2008 was an exceptional vintage, made exceptional by being quietly ordinary. Bloom was very late in variable weather. The result was smaller clusters with fewer berries. The summer passed quickly with veraison occurring earlier than expected, leaving the false impression that there was more crop hanging in the vineyard than there really was. Final ripening took place in endless cool, sunny days in an atmosphere of calm that I have never experienced, but hope to again. The fruit was picked clean and perfectly ripe. The only downside was the very small crop, our smallest in ten years.
