PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
This wine comes from old Zinfandel wines vines planted along Hooker Creek north of the town of Glen Ellen in Sonoma Valley. These old vines were planted one hundred and twenty-seven years ago on a part of the Agua Caliente Spanish Land grant purchased from General Vallejo by Joseph Hooker and William Sherman in 1854. Despite an ethically questionable lifestyle, “Fighting Joe” Hooker went on to command the Army of the Potomac in 1863 as a major general. After losing the battle of Chancellorsville to a Confederate force under Robert E. Lee, half the size of his army, he was relieved of command. This is the third harvest from this vineyard.
