Classic notes of black pepper and spice highlight the lush fruit aromas of this James Creek Zinfandel. On the palate, silky layers of blackberries unfold with intriguing coffee and vanilla nuances. This wine has a wonderful history, rich in family tradition. As siblings, Viticulturist Scott Brown and Winemaker Cindy Johnston helped their family plant this Zinfandel vineyard in 1972, when they were 8 and 12 years old. For nearly three decades they have trained and nurtured this vineyard in Pope Valley. Over the years, family and friends have enjoyed the wine, and a new generation of children has continued the tradition of helping in the vineyard.
James Creek Zinfandel
James Creek Vineyards is a small family run boutique winery with vineyards in eastern Napa County in Pope Valley. This part of Napa is as far from the often crowded Highway 29 on the valley floor as you can get in Napa County. “Out here” – there are still more meadows than vineyards – seemingly more pasture animals than people and plenty of fresh air.
