EXPAND YOUR MIND WITH PINK DREAMS. Largely Zinfandel from the 'Hillside Vineyard' in Talmage, right above the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. These head-trained vines were planted on loam in the 1980s. The 'Hillside Vineyard' is CCOF certified organic and makes up half of the Pink Dreams blend. The mind-altering portion of the blend is the 'Sun Hawk Farms' predominantly Rhone field blend (Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Counoise, Muscat, Roussanne, Picpoul, and Viognier): Biodynamic Demeter certified and planted on volcanic and serpentine soils, this vineyard sits next to Duncan Springs Peak. The rest of the blend is Merlot from Wine Fellas benchmark 'Open Hand Ranch' outside of Hopland, CA, and Chenin Blanc from the 'DeAnda Vineyard,' entirely Mendocino County AVA.
Wine Tasting Notes
Pink Dreams goes down like summertime kool-aid. Foot crushed and soaked overnight on skins. This jammer was pressed and settled for twenty-four hours in stainless steel before fermentation & elevage in neutral French oak. Refreshing cranberry fruit and watermelon ranchers touch tangelo zest, meadowy earth, and prickly dandelions. Layered with mineral undertones of primitive rock and peachy-chamomile tea.
Zinfandel 51%, Merlot 22%, Rhone Field Blend 18%, Chenin Blanc 9%
