About The Vineyard
Burnett Vineyards, a 98-year old vineyard in the heart of the Dry Creek Valley produces Grenache, Zinfandel, Carignane and Cinsault. Consistently yielding beautifully complex grapes with undeniable flavors, this vineyard is used for many of Spicy Vines’ most popular wines, such as “Zin Master” Old Vine Zinfandel, “EDGE” Red Blend, “Violet Rose” Rosé and our “Original Blend” Red Spiced Wine. Almost a century old, the magnificent head-trained vines take on a character or their own. In their prime months of development, just before harvest, many grow to reach over six feet tall. Working with this vineyard is, in itself, preserving a piece of history. Cool nights and warm days allow this dry farmed vineyard to crawl along at its own pace, yielding complex fruit and dense flavors year after year.
Barrel Aging: Aged for 22 Months in two-year-old French Oak barrels.
