Agreed, the days of wonderful California Zin being an easy find are long gone.
Which is exactly why we say a collective THANK YOU to Ehren Jordan. Remember Ehren? He is the guy who put TURLEY ZIN on the map. Well today we met his new Zin project and immediately bought every six pack we could. This is ZIN; rich, ripe, spicy and so drinkable. A wonderful expression of our uniquely American grape, a wine we must have to kick off grilling season.
The Day Story
Day is the new Zinfandel project of Ehren Jordan, the mastermind behind such amazing labels as Turley, Neyers, and Failla. When he purchased a St. Helena property back in 2004, he knew he wanted to plant grapes on the hillside that at the time contained an apple orchard. After a few years of pondering, he decided that the locale was ideal for one of his early loves in the vine world - Zinfandel. Four acres are currently planted, with the original vines hitting the dirt in 2011.
Zinfandel is, for Ehren, a return to his roots, having been the wines that established his reputation as a talented vigneron. Similar to the approach at Failla, most of the Day Zinfandel wines are sourced from Sonoma County; an area largely unexplored during Ehren's tenure at Turley.
Great sites, old vines, and gentle winemaking remain the production philosophy for Day. Ehren is more than thrilled to work with some of California's finest Zinfandel vineyards; we hope you are as pleased with the wines as we are.
