Tasting NOTES

Our cool-climate estate in Sonoma cradles the Mayacamas Mountain range, enjoying cool evenings and warm days. Planted in 1976, our eight acres of sustainably farmed Zinfandel vines yield an elegant expression of this wine with aromas of hibiscus, vanilla bean, and strawberry preserves. On the palate vibrant fruit swirls to life with notes of tart pie cherry and fig compote. Rounded out with beautiful structure, this is yet another near-perfect expression of Rhinefarm Zinfandel.

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.
