Named 2007 Winemaker of the Year by the Sonoma County Harvest Fair, winemaker Michael Loykasek has been blazing new trails throughout California for the past two decades. Fresh out of U.C. Davis with a degree in enology in 1983, Mike spent 5 years developing his winemaking style in Paso Robles. From there he headed the winemaking program at Meeker Vineyard in Dry Creek Valley. After leaving Meeker, Mike headed up winemaking at Armida Winery. After many successful years making wine Mike decided it was time to let the Dark Horse out of the barn, so to speak. And ever since, he's been hittin' the trails with the Dark Horse. The concept is simple: take small lots of exceptional wine and put it in a package that folks can't help but notice...and have some fun with it along the way! www.darkhorsewine.com PRESS 92 points! Wine Spectator names Dark Horse 2005 Dry Creek Zin, Treborce Vineyard, top-rated California Zinfandel. Featured in BOTH May 2008 and June 30 edition! Dallas Morning News says...

A deep, dark wine that's great for a chilly night. A heaping helping of dark fruits, purple lollipops, and a sweet, vaguely vanilla finish. Great with a meal.

This is my absolute favorite wine. I love most red wines, and sometimes spend big bucks. This wine tastes like you spent big bucks and easily compares to wines costing up to $30, in my opinion.

For the price, I think this red is a classic. No edge to the finish at all. A lovely rich and smooth winter wine.
