Six Cloves' first Zinfandel was sourced from CCOF-certified Castanon Vineyards in Mendocino County. Jose and his wife farm Zinfandel and red varieties organically on 7.5 acres of land in Redwood Valley, about two hours north of Sonoma County. Their vineyards sit on the site with a great view of the Valley. Their Zinfandel vines were well grounded deeply into the red soil, and the grapes grew super healthy despite big summer heat waves during the growing season. We picked grapes from two separate parcels and fermented a small fraction of the lot with the whole cluster, aged in 20% new French oak.
