    Winemaker Notes

    The 2012 Gypsy is the red headed step sister of the Grenache. She's edgy yet sexy, and un-apologetic for her wild ways. The nose has ethereal notes of raw red meat, black currant, a hint of clove, juxtaposed by roasted blackberries, and dark chocolate on the fore and mid palate. She always leaves you wanting more with her long herbaceous finish and chalky tannins.

    Zinke Winery Image
    Zinke Wine Co. is the realization of a dream between husband and wife, Michael and Ashley Zinke. We specialize in single vineyard, Rhone varietal wines, sourced from the central coast of California.

    While influenced by tradition, we are paving our own path in the vineyard and the cellar in pursuit of the unattainable—perfection. With fruit sourced from the grand crus of the central coast, our wine practically makes itself. Optimal ripeness, hand sorted fruit, small lot fermentations, stem inclusion, co-ferments, and the proper formula of oak and time embody our winemaking philosophy. Although influenced by those before us, our wines never imitate, and always inspire. Our wines harmonize with all genres of food, but the ideal pairing is with friends, family, music, and laughter. We hope you have as much fun enjoying our wines, as we do making them.

    With a dry and mild climate cooled significantly by moist ocean fog and breezes, Santa Barbara County is a grape-grower’s dream. Part of the larger Central Coast appellation, Santa Barbara is home to Santa Maria Valley and Santa Ynez Valley. The conditions here provide an opportunity for nearly effortless production of high-quality cool-climate Central Coast wines. This is also the site of the 2004 film Sideways, which caused Pinot Noir’s popularity to skyrocket and brought new acclaim to the region.

    Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the stars of Santa Barbara, producing wines marked by racy acidity. Crisp Sauvignon Blanc and savory Syrah are also important. The region is home to many young and enthusiastic winemakers eager to experiment with less common varieties including Chenin Blanc, Grüner Veltliner, Trousseau Gris, Gamay and Cabernet Franc, making it an exciting area to watch.

    With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
