Tasting NOTES

If you could bottle everything we love about Northern California it would be in this Zinfandel. On the nose you are greeted with fresh ollalieberry, a local cross between raspberry and blackberry that brings back memories of late summer days along Highway 1 or on the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Contrasted with hints of carne asada spice, like chili powder, cumin and paprika, this unfiltered, lush wine will pair with just about anything and is sure to build a memory of its own.

Vineyard NOTES

The 13 acres of Zinfandel on Rhinefarm were planted in 1976 and grow in the upper benchland portion of the vineyard at an average elevation of 200 feet. They thrive in the rocky, well-drained conditions presented by the alluvial fan compris-ing the lower Mayacamas Mountain Range. Topsoils are 18 to 34 inches deep, consisting of Rhyolitic volcanic ash and alluvial wash. Beneath the topsoil is a mostly impervious layer of consolidated volcanic ash with occasional fractures for the roots to penetrate to deeper depths, producing wines with concentrated fruit flavors and firm structural qualities. Pervasive maritime breez-es and long daylight exposure allow fruit to develop intense concentration while retaining vibrant structure. The vineyard typically yields 2.5 tons/acre.
