The name of the Peaceland Vineyard comes from the translation of its owners’ German last name— Friedland. The unique “tall-head” trained vines were planted in a wild fantasia of settings—steep hillsides, amidst groves of bay and live-oak, with stunning vistas of the city of Santa Rosa far below. The vineyard was ALMOST completely destroyed by the Tubbs Fire on Oct 9th 2017—it is now completely dry-farmed as all irrigation was destroyed along with about 40% of the vines.
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!
