Notes from Prima Materia:

"Zinfandel (and Primitivo) was one our first vines planted in 1999 and then another block in 2004. This bottling is actually a mix of DuPratt Zinfandel and clone 03 Primitivo, both on St. George rootstocks. The blocks are trained differently and planted in different orientations. California sprawl and quadrilateral training. Small amounts of estate Petite Sirah and Aglianico were blended in post fermentation.

2018 was a fire year, with lots of heat spikes and then a beautifully moderate fall. After 2018 and 2020, 2019 seems like some abstract dream. Sure, there was heavy rain, and enough heat to take harvest from 2 weeks late to one week early, and there was the week without electricity. But, there was no smoke, using stems was ok, we could use press wine, and we could still dream."
