2014 The Convict, Branham Vineyard, Rockpile
The Convict is named for the labor used by the sheriff, Tennessee Carter Bishop, in the 1870’s to carve a 15 mile road to his property in the rugged mountainous terrain of Rockpile. The depth & complexity of this wine come from our four old vine zinfandel clones planted on steep rocky terraces overlooking Lake Sonoma. Sitting at 1500 feet above sea level, the undulating earth & desolate locale of these vineyards create intense characteristics expressive of its rich history.
Our fourth wine made from this jewel of a vineyard, and showing some of that muscle we expect from this region along with layers of bright fruit, a keen acidity and broad mouthfeel.

A visit to Paradise Ridge Winery in the daytime is lovely. On summer nights with the view and the sunset, it’s a special treat
Thank you all for all your hard work in putting together what forever in our hearts will be the best day of our lives.
The view from the terrace is like a painting, layered with greens and golds, gradually blending into deeper earth tones and finally fading to hazy purple hues at the horizon.
