Vineyard: The heart of this wine lies in The Poor Ranch in Mendocino County, nestled among diverse mountainous soils and embracing organic farming practices. This single vineyard boasts consistent full-flavored fruit across various grape varieties, lending its character to Old River Red Cuvee III.

Winemaking: This multi-vintage blend marries two exceptional components: 65% Zinfandel from the 2021 harvest and 35% Petite Sirah from 2020. The Zinfandel infuses the wine with lively red berry and floral notes, while the Petite Sirah adds richness with juicy plum character, deep color, and chalky tannins for structure and aging potential.

Tasting Notes: Prepare for a wine that makes a statement from the first sip. The Zinfandel takes center stage with a vibrant fruit-driven core, complemented by the Petite Sirah's complexity, offering notes of inky blackness and subtle plum. Expect a lingering finish marked by the Petite Sirah's signature chalky tannins, inviting further exploration.

Varietal: This is not a single-varietal wine, but a captivating blend of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah.

AVA: The grapes hail from the Mendocino County AVA, known for its diverse terrain and cooler climate, ideal for producing wines with vibrant acidity and depth of flavor.

Production: Information on the specific production numbers for Cuvee III is not readily available. However, Vaughn Duffy Wines is known for crafting small-batch, handcrafted wines, ensuring quality and attention to detail in each bottle.
