  • Was the Sonoma contingency left off the list intentionally? Ridge, Seghesio, Stryker, and Rosenblum are missing

    Stay tuned for next week when I present the best of the rest -- and since the rest is coming from the heart of Sonoma County...

    Exactly, where is Sonoma in all this. And the goddess of Zin, Carol Shelton.

    Well, actually, I would like for Sonoma to remain a secret. Let the crowds go to Napa. ;0) Thanks Gregory Have a good evening.

    Well, no matter what I say I think they will!

    Zin is just not sexy, damn good, but not as sexy as Napa Cabernet.

    Go figure?

    Be well, and thanks.

  • Since the Wall Street Journal [John Brecher] rated" your 03 it's first choice and a winery name to remember"to this new ranking you have proved that he and others are so right. The 2008 FCV is outstanding as are your other wines.Sometimes the "little handmade works well"

    What a great article! It was refreshing to see Mendocino see well represented!

    No Rosenblum?? This list is incomplete!!

  • I will try some of these. However, Brown Winery has some stellar Zins. I mean, Stellar. I like it better than Seghesio, which is very good. Brown is a small family run winery in Napa. I enjoyed the article, I may order some these wines we can't get here in Anchorage.

  • I just interviewed Vince Tofanelli. His Zin comes from his family vineyards in the Calistoga AVA. This is a beautiful Zin, so well balanced and flavorful but not over the top. Add Tofanelli Vineyards Zinfandel 2007 to your list. Vince will be pouring this wine at Zap. Try it and you will be stunned. Price $33. By the way Vince sells Zin grapes to Turley and Duckhorn. That should tell you something!
