Dragon Vineyard is an estate-owned and certified organic vineyard. Planted at 2400 feet at one of the highest points on Howell Mountain, the vineyard sits well above the fog line and faces east. These important features, along with the rocky, red volcanic soil, make for a very unique, full-bodied and powerful Zinfandel that ages beautifully.

Wine AdvocateFrom fruit planted at an elevation of 2,400 feet at the top of Howell Mountain, the deep purple-black 2017 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard features black cherry liqueur, crème de cassis, dried violets, warm baking spice and baked blue fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, it packs in the black and blue fruits with very pretty perfumed earth notes, framed by firm tannins and great freshness, finishing very long and dense. 1,450 cases produced.

Wine SpectatorA bit firm and taut right now, with cherry, stony mineral and smoky pepper flavors that take on torque toward big, buffed tannins. Best from 2021 through 2027. 1,400 cases made.
