About the producer
A relatively new project for winemaker Ehren Jordan (previously of Turley, currently making Failla) entirely dedicated to Zinfandel. The wines have fantastic purity of fruit, old vine concentration and a lightness of touch from a Zin master. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Wine Merchant) With Zinfandel roots dating back to the 1990s, Ehren Jordan is a true vigneron, with decades of experience in the cellars and vineyards of the Rhone Valley, Paso Robles, Sonoma County, Napa Valley and beyond. His obsessive hands-on farming practices and minimalist hands-off winemaking approach come through in every bottle- allowing site, variety and vintage to shine through.
