2011 Dry Creek Vineyard Beeson Ranch Zinfandel

85% zinfandel, 15% petite sirah.


WINEMAKER COMMENTS

Year in and year out, Beeson Ranch Zinfandel provides us with our most distinctive Zinfandel fruit. Produced from historic, pre-Prohibition era vines, the initial aromatics of the wine are subtle with underlying dried floral and white pepper elements. After several minutes of airing, more dramatic aromas of cardamom, graphite and blackberry characters come through. The palate is supple and rich with silky tannins that mingle with dark cherry, blackberry and blueberry fruits. The finish is long and pure with a mouthwatering finish.

This is a delicious Zin from a very special place.

2012 Dutcher Crossing Bernier Sibary Vineyard Zinfandel

75% zinfandel, 10% petite sirah, 10% carignane, 5% matero (mourvedre)

Intermixed in the vineyard with Petite Sirah, Carignane and Mataro. The goal was to create a wine that was definably Zinfandel, but with the added nuances that the other varietals lend. The color of our 2011Bernier Sibary Zinfandel is dark, black-purple-red in hue. It is a very dense wine in appearance, followed with equal density in its aromas and flavors. In the nose are aromas of black fruits, raspberries and a hint of earth. This wine is incredibly elegant, but is also a complex in its aromas. On the palate the flavors are long and satisfying.
