Tasting NOTES

Back in 1976, Jim Bundschu made our first wine since Prohibition...a Zinfandel. Now, 47 years later, we have its gorgeous grandchild a juicy, pillowy soft, fruit-laden, exceptional wine of rich black currants, baking spices, and charred meat. Bucking the trend of traditional jammy Zinfandels, our estate zin is lifted by savory achiote peppers and framed by refreshing acidity from the cool climate growing conditions. Its generous, mouth-filling nectar unabashedly wallows in juicy blackberry and Bing cherry extravagance. Did someone say BBQ? Pizza? Heck yeah!

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
