The 2021 Dina’s Vineyard Zinfandel shows deep, dark color along with focused ripe blackberry, floral, and anise aromas that transition into cocoa, blackberry, and blueberry flavors. The bright acidity speaks to its’ cool climate site, with a dense tannin structure balanced by high fruit intensity. This is a wine that shows well today and will age and improve for years to come. - Jeff Stewart & Tiaan Lordan, Winemakers
Wines From This Vineyard
Dina's Vineyard was planted by the Arata family more than 100 years ago. Today only about five acres of gnarled, dry-farmed vines remain at the Arata home. The vines are predominantly headtrained. They are planted on the typical old-vine, eight-by-eight spacing, originally intended to allow horses to cultivate between the vines in both directions of the vineyard planting. A deep, dark color, coffee-like aromas, and dense, broad texture are all typical indicators of Dina's Vineyard terroir.
