Iron Hill Vineyard

Sonoma Valley

The amazing Iron Hill Vineyard is farmed on volcanic rock and planted in an ampitheater setting.  The Cooke selection comes from a nearby vineyard that always produces wine of complexity and is very expressive and very Northern Rhône like.  The vines are well stressed at the 400 ft elevation vineyard at a 55º slope with a lot of iron exposure, producting red notes in the Zinfandel.  There is no other vineyard that produces a Zinfandel like this.  The 17 year old vines produce a wine that is cleary Zinfandel but with Northern Rhône character.  Jeff believes that the large lavender patch in the middle of the vineyard adds an aromatic profile to this Zinfandel.
