Landy Sweetwater Springs Vineyard

Russian River Valley, Sonoma

 

The Landy Sweetwater Springs Vineyard is a gorgeous site for Zinfandel and Petite Sirah.  Jeff has been sourcing from this vineyard since 2007.  Ranging from 300 to 1000 ft. elevation, the well drained soils bring a mineral backbone to the wine.  There is a richness and intensity with finesse in the Petite Sirah grown at a 55° slope.  The Zinfandel is dark and rich as the rocky and sloping hillsides forces the fruit to dig deep for nutrients.  Both of these wines are full of so much character, it's impossible to choose a favorite.
