D_R_Zin1The Diener Ranch is a 10 acre vineyard in the Red Hills district in Lake County. This site possesses incredible deep, rocky, red volcanic soil, and at 2,000′ slopes toward Clear Lake.

The best Diener Ranch Zin yet! 2010 was an incredible growing season in Lake County. The cooler, but sunny weather contributed to a very late pick enabling the buildup of flavor and balance that Enkidu loves to see in their wines. Broad aromas of plum, blackberry and cocoa dust lead into similar flavors. There is a mouth coating tannin similar to cocoa, but also a creaminess reminiscent of white chocolate that gives this Zin great balance and length. We expect that the 2010 will age extremely well, but given its demand most will be consumed by 2013. Think pan seared duck dusted with cocoa powder and a blackberry dried herb sauce.
