Special Cuvée, 1999

$ 120.00

We reserve the term ‘Special Cuvee’ for our more exotic Scherrer Vineyard Zinfandel bottlings. This vintage, we had the opportunity to produce such a wine. Fermented with many ‘whole clusters’, it is very rich forward and seductive. It was bottled without fining or filtration to allow the seduction to continue for years to come.

Winemaker's Notes

If some blending elements fight with the typical ‘OMV’ personality, but have their own story to tell, we listen. After the main harvest was in, we experimented with techniques with a few remaining tons of grapes. The fatigue of harvest gave birth to creative abandon here. Lots of whole clusters, carbonic maceration, etc., resulted in some very exotic, generous, but headstrong barrels of Zinfandel. This is one of those ‘Gobs of’ wines. At bottling, it reminds me very much of the 1993 ‘Old & Mature’ Zinfandel. 320 cases produced.
