Nearly as good as the 2006 vintage, but can probably sit for a year before being enjoyed. Read more

Jammy nose with pretty florals and hints of white pepper on the nose. On the palate, baking spice, pepper and berry jam. Some bramble tones. Nice and light style. - Schreiner's Winers Zin tasting 9/18/10

Bonterra Zinfandel 750ml Bonterra Zinfandel has aromas of red raspberry and brambly fruit with hints of mountain blueberry and a touch of white pepper and cedar spice. As you enjoy the wine, you'll find dependable ZInfandel flavors of rich plum, blackberry compote, black pepper and a sweet mouthfeel with mature, easy-going tannings.

WE 90pts Winemaker Notes: The wine has aromas of brambly fruit and ripe blueberries accented with hints of toasty oak and vanilla. e characteristically Zinfandel flavors of plum, blueberry and black pepper lead to an elegant, balanced and soft finish.

A zesty, youthful fruit bomb that's loaded with spicy wild berry, cracked pepper and licorice aromas and ripe berry cobbler flavors. Drink now.

A little on the sweet extracted side, but balanced with rich, fine tannins and just-in-time acidity. The blackberry, currant, raspberry and cocoa flavors will play well against a grilled steak.

Zinfandel has forever defined Mendocino, a tribute to the remarkable winesproduced by Italians who settled this rugged county. Their Zin field blends stoodup to winter cold and paired well with the rustic cuisine of the old world. OurBonterra Zin is a lot less rustic, a little more elegant, even Claret-like, but stillrecognizably Mendocino (with the best of the Amador Sierra Foothills brought intoplay.)Bonterra Zinfandel is from mostly dry farmed, head trained vineyards of low yield,watched over in the old world farming style that today we'd call organic, but whatMendocino farmers like the Poor family called common sense. Most of the vinesaverage 35-40 years old, on St. George rootstock. Mendocino dominates theblend, with vineyards in the hills and valleys at 800-2600 feet above sea level, butAmador offers a spicy complexity that rounds out the wine. Selected lots aregently pressed to soften tannins. It's truly a wine we try not to manipulate muchbecause the fruit from these exceptional vineyards simply doesn't need it. Ourbiodynamic Butler ranch contributes both Zinfandel and Petite Sirah to this blend.Leroy Chase is a grand old vineyard, and the Hooper ranch is one of our mostdependable vineyards.In our third US release, balance is the key, with a wine redolent of rich aromas ofred raspberry and brambly fruit with hints of mountain blueberry, and a touch ofwhite pepper and cedar spice. You'll enjoy dependable Zinfandel flavors of richplum, blackberry compote, black pepper and a sweet mouthfeel with mature, easygoing tannins. This remains a signature wine, the Zen of Zin.

Rustically tannic and a little on the thin side, but rewards for wild berry and tobacco flavors and a dry, spicy finish. This is a Zin to gulp with hard cheeses.
