Viticulture

David Bailey grew the beautiful USDA Organic grapes that make the Bailey Zinfandel. This is the only vineyard-designate Zinfandel that is produced at Peachy Canyon which is not grown by their own hands. Bailey Ranch is located on Peachy Canyon Road, at the southern end of the Santa Lucia Mountains, in the Adelaida District of Paso Robles.  This vineyard is at 1,700 feet in elevation, with steep sloping hillsides, comprised of calcareous limestone soil.  Farming practices are organic. The vines are head-trained and the vineyard is dry-farmed.

Vinification

Fermentation occurred primarily in a concrete tank for vintage 2019, and is one of the most beautiful vintages of Bailey Zinfandel yet. At roughly 10 months of age, and with malolactic fermentation complete, select barrels of Bailey Zinfandel were designated for use in the final blend. Once blended, the wine was returned to primarily seasoned French Oak barriques to continue to age until bottling in March of 2021.

Tasting notes

明るいマロン色で、アメリカンチェリーのアロマ。ダークフルーツの焼き菓子のような香ばしいフレーバー様々なクローブやシナモンなどベイキングスパイスと白胡椒が加わり、シルキーで長いフィニッシュへと導く。とてもピュアな味わい。

Producer Description

Zinfandel Specialists of Paso Robles

Peachy Canyon Winery is a family-owned and operated winery in Paso Robles, on California’s Central Coast.  Founded by Doug and Nancy Beckett in 1988, and considered one of Paso Robles’ earliest 10 wineries, Peachy Canyon has long been praised as a producer of award-winning California wines that epitomize respect for terroir and dedicated winemaking.  With our exemplary Zinfandels, Peachy Canyon was instrumental in establishing Paso Robles’ reputation as a key California wine region.

 
Today, Peachy Canyon Winery is managed by 2nd-generation owners, Josh and Jake Beckett, who spent their childhood in the vineyard and winery alongside their parents, Doug and Nancy.  During their decades long career path in the industry, the brothers recognized an opportunity for more unorthodox brands in the market.  In 2004, they took a leave from Peachy Canyon to create their own brand, Chronic Cellars.  Through shrewd marketing and remarkable quality wines, they built Chronic Cellars to 17,000 cases before selling to Winery Exchange in 2014 and subsequently completing the five-year buyout agreement in early 2019.  Promptly thereafter, Josh and Jake returned to Peachy Canyon Winery to relieve their parents of the daily operations and responsibilities of the family business.
 
Although Peachy Canyon has historically been known as a Zinfandel house, a full 40% of what is planted today is Rhone and Bordeaux variety based.  Josh and Jake recently acquired some new vineyards. The family now cultivates 102 acres planted on Paso’s westside, all within the 3 most coveted sub Ava’s:  Willow Creek, Adelaida and the Templeton Gap.  Future plantings will include Zinfandel, Rhone and Bordeaux varieties as the brothers are interested in continuing to develop their production of Estate wines and blends.  Beginning with the 2019 vintage, Peachy Canyon will use fruit exclusively from its 102 acres of family-owned, estate vineyards in Paso Robles.
