||Pierce's disease resistant winegrape.
This red wine grape is 97% V. vinifera, has characteristics of Zinfandel
Cabernet Sauvignon and is highly resistant to Pierce’s Disease. It is
established in field trials in Temecula and along the Napa River, where
commercial scale wines have been made. It blooms relatively late, but
ripens mid-season. The berries are medium and the clusters are
well-filled and relatively large. Although this selection is spur fruitful it typically has only one cluster per shoot and is more productive with cane pruning.
Technical: This red wine grape variety was bred by Dr. Andrew Walker
and is 50% Zinfandel, 25% Petite Sirah, and 12.5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
