About Manzanita Creek 2013 Zinfandel, Old Vine, Cloud Buster, Russian River Valley

Manzanita Creek was started by two brothers who worked in construction. They decided they wanted to make wine and took a book out of the library. Well, they obviously are very good students because within two years they had a wine selected to the San Francisco Chronicle Top 100 and they continue to turn out award winning and high scoring wines every vintage. This 2013 Cloud Buster Zinfandel comes from a vineyard at the eastern most edge of the Russian River Valley, planted in 1976 (40+ year old vines) on a bench at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains, 300 feet elevation. The vineyard faces West and is sun-drenched while also being ocean cooled. The name 'Cloud Buster' refers to the WW II Fighters that fly overhead during the annual 'Wings over Wine Country' in August.

This scored 98 points from Just Wine Points! They said "From the moment you smell this wine you know it’s gonna be fantastic! Beautiful aromas of brambly blackberry, raspberry, briar, pepper spice with complements of cedar, vanilla and toasted oak. On the palate, this is a spicy, tasty wine with lots of flavor leading to a lingering oak-filled finish." It's on Sale and it's Limited!!!!
