D H Gustafson Family Vineyards Estate Zinfandel 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 harvest marked the first harvest of fruit from our young St. Peter's Church plantings in the Old Vineyard Block. These vines added a youthful, fruit forward intensity to the wine and helped to balance the more mature flavors developing in our Heritage Tree Block. Aged in a light complement of new oak to aid in harmonizing the flavors, this wine showcases classic Zinfandel lushness while maintaining structure and balance.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Tasting Notes:

This unique blend reflects the terrior of our vineyard. The nose displays an elegant floral bouquet and the pallet opens with raspberry and cherry highlighted by notes of clove and spice. The finish is smooth displaying medium bodied soft tannins. A food friendly wine, our Zinfandel pairs well with tomato based foods and barbeque.
