Old vines and wild fermentation give this
wine, from one of the world’s top Zin
specialists, its strong personality.
What You Need To Know
Carol Shelton is one of the country’s
most talented Zinfandel specialists, and wines like this show you
why. Wild Thing is so named because the grapes are fermented
with naturally occurring, wild yeasts from the vineyard that
produces the wine. This vineyard, too, is special. Just north of
Ukiah in Mendocino, the Cox Vineyard was planted in 1956, and
at age 56 the vines are still going strong. Rocky soils and the
most parsimonious irrigation regime cause these vines to
produce luscious, chewy wines.
