Deerfield Ranch Winery

Deerfield Ranch Winery Review

The focus at Deerfield is on producing "clean wines"—ones low in histamines and sulfites—the better to eliminate the headaches and allergic reactions some red-wine drinkers experience. Winemaker Robert Rex accomplishes this goal with no loss of flavor or complexity. Deerfield wines are bold, fruit-forward wines with a long finish. The lush DRX and Meritage Bordeaux-style blends invite contemplation about the vineyards, weather, and wine-making skills involved in their creation, whereas the pleasures of the Red Rex blend revolve chiefly around its friskiness. To taste these and other vintages (Rex also makes white wines), you walk deep into a 23,000-square-foot cave. Standard tastings ($15) include five wines; for an additional $5, you can sample more, including one from the reserve list.
