Bonterra Vineyards Zinfandel Mendocino County Organic 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

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

Lusty and forward, this Cab blasts off with explosive cherry, red and black currant, licorice, spicy red plum and mocha flavors. Not very subtle, but itrsquo;s dry and rich in steak-busting tannins.

From the Fetzer family, this Cabernet is produced from organically grown grapes. Rich plum and berry balanced by American and French oak creates a full-bodied wine that would complement a side of beef.

Bonterra has long been a champion of organic grape growing, and their wines have always been classic expressions of varietal character. So it is with this inexpensive Cabernet. Itrsquo;s dry, richly tannic and flavorful in blackberries and cherries, with a ripe edge of cocoa. Fully drinkable now, it has real elegance and class.

Blueberry pie and clove predominating, the wine is tannic, super-structured, with a spicy finish. A good deal for sure. -According to the Wine Enthusiast

Supple, elegant and polished, delivering ripe, fleshy plum, black cherry, mineral, spice and light cedary oak flavors that are well-proportioned, gaining length. Drink now through 2011.

Winemaker Notes - Cabernet Sauvignon is known for creating wines of amazing density and complexity with both concentrated and nuanced avors. In making Bonterra Cabernet Sauvignon, I like to add to these layers of avor by blending in small amounts of other red varietals to add color, texture, and a bit of spice. Varieties and vineyard lots are kept separate until the best lots are blended together to create the nal wine. is Cabernet o ers aromas of bright cherry, currant, and raspberry with notes of toasted oak and vanilla. In the glass, you will nd avors of cherry and currant and a lingering and thoughtful nish. Good structure, a moderate weight, polished tannins and a balanced acidity promise an ever more pleasing wine to come. is is a Cabernet Sauvignon which will continue to evolve and remain enjoyable for quite some time to come.
