The Taylor Ranch Vineyard was originally planted in the 1890's, and two acres from then are still going strong.
On offer now is Old Vine Zin planted 40-50 years ago. The vines are planted in the uplands of northeastern Dry Creek Valley, where the heat summation is ideal for Zin. The shallow, well-drained soil, combined with often foggy mornings and the gentle afternoon breezes bring the grapes to a perfection of maturity.
These grapes have traditionally gone into vineyard-designated wines, garnering many gold medals at professional competitions.
