Located on Starr Road in Windsor, the 8-acre Clopton Vineyard was planted over 100 years ago and is dry farmed, yielding only about 3 tons in total, resulting in a wonderfully concentrated flavor for which Bruce has produced earlier wines garnering 90+ ratings from Wine Spectator. The blend is zinfandel, alicante bouchet and a touch of palomino.
