Winemaker's Notes

This vineyard is located almost 1400 feet above the Napa Valley on the eastern slope of the Vaca range. The sparse producing vines are grafted to the 100-year old Hambrecht clone of Zinfandel. The hillside location, sparse production, small berries, and mountain climate adds a tremendous intensity to the wine. This exotic mountain Zinfandel exhibits ripe cherries and blackberries with hints of dark currants, Asian spices and vanilla. It has a good tannin and acid backbone, which makes cellaring for 5-7 years a worthwhile effort. It definitely is a Zinfandel that will roar when you pair it with a Rack of Lamb or grilled Venison.

Rosenblum Cellars Winery is located in the historic Todd Shipyard Building in the City of Alameda. The picturesque building constructed around 1910 sits right at the edge of San Francisco Bay. Our view is spectacular, and the cooling bay breezes give us natural air conditioning. The grapes for our wines come from over 30 different vineyards located in Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles and Contra Costa County. Many of the vineyards are over 75 years old, head-pruned and dry farmed. The old plow on our labels symbolizes our down-to-earth and natural style of winemaking.
