Buena Vista Winery Sonoma Zinfandel 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2012 vintage of our Sonoma County Zinfandel is a true representation of Sonoma County's diverse terroir and is an exceptional expression of the varietal. Concentrated notes of strawberry and red raspberry entice the nose while mouth-coating darker fruit flavors of blackberry and brambleberry grace the palate. Firm tannin structure, balanced acidity and a long finish make this wine the perfect complement to a pulled pork sandwich.

  Despite several setbacks, Buena Vista Carneros Winery has proven that it is capable of producing great wines no matter what the world has to throw at it. Founded in 1857 by Count Agoston Haraszthy, Buena Vista is California’s oldest premium winery. Unlike many wineries, smooth sailing was not in the cards for Buena Vista. During a trip to Nicaragua, Agoston Haraszthy died, supposedly while crossing a crocodile-infested river. Still, the winery pressed forward, carving a name for itself in California. Unfortunately, tragedy struck again, when a massive earthquake in 1906 destroyed their underground cellars. It wasn’t until 1940 that the winery recovered, thanks to Frank Bartholomew, as well as the winemaking skills of Andre Tchelistcheff. Today, Buena Vista Carneros Winery is clearly a success, since its original location just outside of the town of Sonoma is considered a California Historic Landmark. Since starting to grow wine grapes in Carneros in 1969, they have accumulated almost 500 acres in Carneros, with over 100 separate vineyard blocks, all under the guidance of winemaker Jeff Stewart.
