About This Wine:
It’s known for its rugged coastline, seaside inns, fish-focused restaurants and active arts community. Wine lovers also know that inland Mendocino is home to vast stretches of vineyards and numerous quality-focused wineries.
Within the Mendocino appellation lies the Anderson Valley viticultural area, as well as a group of smaller AVAs including Cole Ranch, McDowell Valley, Potter Valley, Redwood Valley and Yorkville Highlands. The vineyards that dot the hills and dales of the rugged region, part of Mendocino’s immigrant past, give the area its identity as a home to Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Carignane, Charbono and Grenache.
Mendocino also is home to some of America’s most sought-after Alsatian white varieties, prestige sparkling wines and Pinot Noir. Iron Rock is a Pinot Noir specialist, and its 2018 “Reserve” Pinot is truly outstanding, from its floral and berry-infused aroma to its rich finish — one more reason to love Mendocino.
