Fact Sheet

The name of the PeaceLand Vineyard comes from the translation of its owners’ German last name—Friedland.  The unique “tall-head” trained vines are planted in a wild fantasia of settings—steep hillsides, amidst groves of bay and live-oak, most with stunning vistas of the city of Santa Rosa far below.  It was the three separate clones Zinfandel that drew us to try them out…and we are hooked!

 

Winemaker Notes:

Deep spicy jammy berry, rich chocolatey oak, layers of loveliness! Juicy razzberry jam in mouth, bright acidity and good structure for aging.  This baby packs everything that Zin should be and much more!
