Mendocino Ridge, Mend0cino County
AN ISLAND MADE FOR ZINFANDEL
Situated 2,600 feet up on the rugged North Coast, just above the fog line, the Mariah Vineyards have been dubbed “Islands in the Sky™” a unique collaboration of altitude and maritime breezes that seem to bring out the best in Zinfandel. With its sparse soil and microclimate, the Mendocino Ridge is notoriously challenging for growing grapes but when properly coaxed produces fruit with intensity and rich, complex flavors.
