Technical Info

Bushnell Vineyard History

Located on the eastern hillsides of Dry Creek Valley, the 22-acre Bushnell Vineyard has been closely related to the Pedroncelli family for over 50 years. Winery founder John Sr. purchased the property in 1945, and, at the time, it was planted to Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Carignane. The vineyard was sold to son-in-law Al Pedroni in the 1950's and he tended the vineyard for over 40 years. Al's daughter Carol Bushnell inherited the vineyard in the 1990s and she and her husband Jim now farm it. They grow Zinfandel and Petite Sirah.

Winemaking

The dry growing season (because of the fourth year of drought) accelerated ripening. The grapes were harvested the first week of September. Ripe aromas and flavors, very dense and concentrated wine for this 2015 vintage. Fermentation took place in a small capacity stainless steel tank which lends better skin-to-juice ratio. Daily pumpovers over the cap of grape skins extracts color, flavor and tannin. The young wine was transferred to American oak barrels to age for sixteen months. The time in the barrel added complexity, creating many layers of flavor.
