Gundlach Bundschu "Rheinfarm Vineyard" Sonoma County Mountain Cuvee 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Fragrant aromas of anise, coriander and warm cherry compote. Dense flavors of raspberry and red cherry laced with notes of orange pekoe and ultra dark chocolate lead to a long, chewy finish. A lush, fruit-forward wine intended to be enjoyed within five years of vintage. 70% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Petit Verdot

At Gundlach Bundschu we define sustainability broadly, seeking not only to be responsible stewards of the land, but also to preserve this land for future generations of our family. There is nothing static about this view of sustainability—it requires innovation and action. We believe that preserving the unique ecosystem of Rhinefarm is essential to wine quality, as well as to the health of our family and business. The introduction of beneficial predators, from owls and bluebirds to beetles and mites, and intensive pest monitoring allows us to eliminate all regular use of pesticides, use no pre-emergent herbicides and limit the use of aggressive herbicides. Cover crops contribute vital diversity and nutrition to the soils, and we utilize registered organic compounds and practices whenever possible. Vigilant management of our acute deficit irrigation program and water reclamation ponds promote conservation, recycling 70% of winery water. We use biodiesel to fuel our tractors, and continually seek ways to enhance environmental quality and make the most efficient use of resources. Like many of his family members before him, Jeff Bundschu is striving to redefine the estate vision to meet the industry challenges of the times. With superb vineyards and a talented team of employees, he is excited about the future of the estate. “Each generation of my family that has stood on this dirt felt compelled to looking at the vines and wines with a fresh eye. Our winery’s evolution is destined—families evolve. Land evolves. Plants evolve. Palates evolve.” Equally important to Bundschu is the preservation of the open-minded and spirited culture with which the winery has long been associated. “Our life here at Gundlach Bundschu, with its wine and good people, has always been about laughter, hard work, enjoying the inspiration that comes from being in such a beautiful place, and sharing what we have with our friends and neighbors.” Tasting Room Our intimate tasting room can only accomodate small groups, and we request groups of eight or more reserve a private tour for your visit.

Didnt know what to expect when I opened this bottle. But I wish I had about 3 more bottles at home. It was absolutely wonderful. If only I could remember where I bought it.... :)

smooth, nice fragrant start...fruity and easy finish. Great choice for red sauces & meats, or just for drinking.
