Tasting NOTES

Most of our Zinfandel vines were planted while America celebrated its bicentennial, and currently, in 2019, Gun Bun celebrates 161 years. With that much to celebrate, you don't even need you own milestone to enjoy this excellent expression of our estate Zinfandel from 2016. Rejoice in abundant aromas of toasty baking spices with red flowers and luscious chocolate-dipped cherries that melt into a creamy palate of raspberry, cherry, and huckleberry flavors with a touch of tannin and lively acidity that keeps this lush wine dancing along the senses. With the perfect balance of fruit, spice, and structure, this Zin will keep you celebrating for the next 8-10 years, but we donât recommend keeping it for 160 or 200, FYI.

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 comprising 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 breezes and long daylight exposure allow fruit to develop intense concentration while retaining vibrant structure. The vineyard typically yields 2.5 tons/acre.
