K&L Notes

Bambino is something like a sustaining contribution to the legacy of the Zinfandel-based California heritage wines. The Old Hill Ranch is quite possibly the oldest vineyard in Sonoma, with a handful of vines approaching 160 years of age. Will Bucklin, whose stepfather acquired and rehabilitated the vineyard in 1984, is now the winemaker at his family's estate, after stints at Lafite-Rothschild and Navarro, and at King Estate in Willamette Valley as head winemaker. The Bucklin family's "Bambino," a field blend of predominantly Zinfandel, is the younger vine expression of their ancient vineyard, from a small 10-acre plot replanted in 1998.
