Winemaker Steven Canter Notes
the 2007 vintage will likely be held up as a benchmark for producing wines of unusual elegance and focus. A cool and even summer let the fruit fully ripen while retaining beautifully balanced acidity. While putting together the various components of this blend, a very complex and complete picture begins to emerge of Dry Creek Valley’s particular expression of Zinfandel. Plums are a common description of Zinfandel; in this vintage they remind me of the small wild plums that dot our Sonoma County roadsides as opposed to the sweeter black supermarket variety. The classic briar patch notes are there on the nose, but the palate is much more elegant than you would expect. In fact, I find this wine to be uncommonly sophisticated, capable of danci ...more... ng with not only BBQ and burgers, but with your most ambitious culinary creations.
