    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2007 season began dry, about 60% of normal precipitation with some very cold days and single-digit nighttime temperatures around the New Year holiday. Temperatures were warmer than normal as winter continued into spring with resulting earlier budding, bloom and set in the vineyards across all varieties. The summer months continued on the mild to cool side, with few days topping 100 degrees. There was a brief period of heat that spiked around Labor Day, but the temperatures cooled after several days. This year clusters, as well as individual berries on the clusters – though set at a normal quantity – were notably smaller in all varieties due to the dry season.

    A medley of blackberry, raspberry, cherry and prunes open up the ripe aromas and flavors of our Zinfandel. Reminiscent of cedar wood and pepper spice, this luscious wine is rich and dense with supple tannins and a long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    While its high percentage of Petite Sirah raises the specter of obvious tannin, this lively, well-fruited Zinfandel is largely free of toughness. It is, fact, buoyant and bright with a long line of zingy, young, berry-like fruit, and it is just the kind of well-balanced wine that we envision when looking for the right partner for pastas bathed in rich Bolognese meat sauces.

    Decent wine. A little hard for drinking without a meal, but with the meal (steak and pasta with sausage) was very nice.

    Thought this would be WAY better than it was because I'm such a big fan of Charles Krug Pinot Noir and Red Zinfandel in general. It was decent but nothing great. I won't order this again.
