Wine note from owner Bruce Neyers: "This beautiful parcel of grape vines still takes my breath away. It combines all of the things we at Neyers Winery look for in vineyards. The soil is rocky -- uncommon for Zinfandel in California, as most of the acreage devoted to that variety is planted on sandy loam or clay. The rocky soil brings out a brightness in both the aroma and flavor of the finished wine, which enhances its complexity and makes it even more attractive in its youth. The rock found in much of this area is quartz, an igneous rock brought up from a mile or more below the surface centuries ago when the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range was formed. This part of northern California tends to be a warm growing region as well, but a weather phenomenon known as ‘The Sierra Rotor’ serves to bring cold, foggy air in from the Golden Gate and the vines are artificially cooled in the summer months as a result."
