Vineyard 29's Aida Estate Vineyard is located 2 miles north of the 29 Estate vineyard on Highway 29. It is a historic property that has produced wine since the 1920s when Petite Sirah vines were first planted at this site. In 2001, Chuck and Anne acquired Aida as an ideal complement to Vineyard 29's home vines. An upgrade of the vineyard was immediately undertaken with several vine blocks being replanted. Cabernet sauvignon now serves as the backbone for our Aida Estate vineyard; however the old zinfandel vines are still a key part of Vineyard 29's portfolio providing fruit for our Aida Estate Zinfandel and our Aida Estate Late Harvest Zinfandel.

TASTING NOTES: On the valley floor, with an almost Chateauneuf du Pape layer of small stones, is the Aida Estate, one of my favorite vineyards just north of St. Helena. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc aged 20 months in three fourths new French oak. The good news is that there are 800 cases of this magnificent wine, with a somewhat Graves like scorched earth, charcoal, burning ember scented nose, with notes of hot earth, blackberry and cassis fruit. Big, full bodied, exuberant and rich, this thick, unctuously textured, purple wine should drink beautifully for 25 30 or more years. Drink Dates: 2015-2045
