New Release 2007 Zinfandel
GOLD MEDAL WINNER!!
Our 2007 Zinfandel was awarded a Gold Medal at the 2012 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. This is the largest wine competition held in North America and brings in upwards of 3,500 entries every year.
This much anticipated vintage has been well worth the wait! The 2007 harvest began early, stalled mid-way due to cool weather, and finished in late October to vintner accolades. Grape growers praised the high quality and winemakers were happy with the small berry size. Located in the middle of the Russian River Valley, our vineyard sees cool mornings and warm afternoons. This weather pattern benefits Zinfandel, since it leads to a longer growing season and even-ripened grape clusters.
Our 2007 Russian River Valley Zinfandel has aromas of oregano, cooking spices and a hint of white pepper complemented with subtle flavors of anise seed and bramble berry. Luscious deep fruit characteristics and a beautiful tannin structure on the mid palate with a long full finish.
