Armida Winery Zinfandel

Armida Winery Zinfandel

The Maple Vineyard sits up on a bench above the east side of Dry Creek Valley, and is farmed utilizing old world techniques by Tom and Tina Maple. These old Zinfandel vines (85+ years) are dry farmed resulting in wines of great depth and concentration. The beautiful Zinfandel clusters are sorted a minimum of three times to ensure that only the highest quality fruit is being used for this unique single-vineyard wine. Half of the wine was fermented in an open-top tank to soften the tannin structure. Only free-run wine was gently transferred to French and American oak barrels to age for 16 months.

Winery/Brewery Info

For 20 years now, brothers Steve and Bruce Cousins have been producing some of the best wines in Sonoma County. They hand-craft vineyard designated wines from many of the top vineyards including Maple Vineyards Zinfandel and Maple Vineyards Tina’s Block (perhaps Dry Creek’s most coveted Zin Block), Durell Vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Parmelee-Hill Pinot Noir and Zinfandel, Castelli Knight Ranch Pinot Noir, Gold Mine Ranch Zinfandel, and Bacigalupi Vineyard Pinot Noir. They also are very excited with our addition of Gap’s Crown Vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to our portfolio which will be released next year. From their seven-acre estate vineyard we produce Il Campo (“Field Blend”), a delicious combination of Zinfandel and Petite Syrah.
