Predator Old Vine Zinfandel
Rutherford’s philospophy of responsible farming is witnessed in the Predator which references not the strength of the wine but“Natural Predation” – an eco-friendly strategy to control harmful insects in the vineyards. The label displays a Ladybird, a natural insect predator, which feed on destructive aphids in the vineyards.
Harvested from 50 year old vines, the grapes produce a wine that is very concentrated and complex. Great fruit-forward fl avours of sweet black cherries and raspberries, with bold aromas of exotic spice. A real “chewy” wine.
