VINEYARD CHARACTER - Dina’s Vineyard was planted by the Arata family more than 100 years ago. Today only about ten acres of gnarled, dry-farmed vines remain at their original home-site. The vines are predominantly head-trained and planted on the typical 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, and dense, broad texture are all typical expressions of Dina’s Vineyard terroir.
TASTING NOTES - The 2015 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 dense, tannin structure of the wine is balanced by high fruit intensity and bright acidity, making it a wine that shows well today and will age and improve for years to come.
