St Francis Pagani Vineyard Zinfandel
F or the past 12 years St. Francis has had the privilege of producing
a small quantity of old vines Zinfandel from grapes of the famed Pagani Family
Vineyard located in the heart of Sonoma Valley. First planted by the family patriarch
Felice Pagani in the 1880’s, this old world vineyard is dry farmed, without benefit of
trellising and to this day is farmed by the Pagani family in the field blend style.
Although the vineyard blocks are planted mostly to Zinfandel, they also contain small
plantings of a diverse range of grape varieties including Mourvedre and Alicante
When small amounts of these varieties are blended with the old vines Zinfandel,
the end result is a remarkble red wine enjoyed by so many of the immigrant
families who settled in Sonoma County at the turn of the century, very reminiscent
of their red table wines from home. Sonoma Valley’s warm summer days hasten the
ripening of these grapes to their peak of potential - spicy, brambly Zinfandel,
peppery Mourvedre and color intensity from the Alicante Bouschet. American oak
is specifically selected for its cinnamon, nutmeg and clove flavors enhancing the
complexity of this treasured old vines Zinfandel.
