Our little Ponytails yields mighty flavors of concentrated blackberry, ripe fig, high-toned cherry, white pepper and violets, all on a dreamy bed of vanilla crème and mocha pillows.  It is grown North of the town of Healdsburg just a heartbeat from the Healdsburg Airport.  The vines are small, and struggle to grow in soil rich in gravel and hilly conditions.  We let this vintage hang well into the first week of harvest - but a blast of hot air -from a heat wave -brought us to our knees and we picked these. We didn't know it but we were lucky to do this 2 weeks before the Firestorm of 2017.  This wine is rich in white pepper, violets, bright blackberry and dark chocolate on the finish.  Only 75 cases made and it may come down to first come-first serve for this beautiful wine. With 15.9% Alcohol - this wine is certainly not shy but well balanced and lovely! Took GOLD at the 2018 Sonoma county Harvest Fair.  More will certainly follow.  Sante!  Nancy

Our Ponytails Zinfandel 2017 is grown on Steeply terraced hills on the Pony Ranch owned by Laurie and Robert Poseman in Healdsburg, CA Sonoma County.  The vineyard is delicately manicured and well groomed. Producing intense flavors, colors and highly extracted flavors and aromas.  Our growers are wonderful and we love to spend time with Laurie and Robert  whenever we can.  The Ranch has such a sweet name because it historically was a ranch for small horses.  When Laurie and Robert purchased the ranch the name stuck.  We love it and so will you!  Nancy
