Dashe "Les Enfants Terribles" Mcfadden Farm Potter Valley More United States Zinfandel 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Ruby red. Aroma: Beautiful wild strawberry nose, with black cherry underneath. Fresh earth, minerals, wonderful spicy white pepper. Taste: Entry is of beautiful wild strawberry/black cherry fruit. Great acidity and velvety texture, very juicy and light on the tongue. Spicy, complex, full of mineral and earthy notes. Finish of wild strawberry, granite, and white pepper spice. Clean, lingering fresh fruit finish.

McFadden Vineyard has been family owned and operated since 1970 in Potter Valley, where Guinness McFadden has been farming organically for 40 years. The hot days and cool nights of Potter Valley give our wines exceptional character and flavor; and meticulous care of the soil enables us to produce top quality grapes year after year. A vibrant natural ecosystem, which is essential to maintaining a healthy organic vineyard, is supported by the renowned Russian River and neighboring Mendocino National Forest. Thankfully, not much has changed here in pastoral Potter Valley in the past 50 years… it is truly a hidden gem. We began producing our wine in 2003 after many years selling our grapes to top wineries in the Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino counties. We are still a boutique winery producing fewer than 3,000 cases of quality wine. We hope you will try some of our wines, we know you will enjoy them! Read less

Gorgeous nose here, this is all wild fruit, dried flowers, and nuanced fresh herbs that explode from the glass. A little softer on entry than expected, this soon fills the mouth with the aromas of the nose, wild red berried fruit, pine cones, a touch of toasted nuttiness, blue flowers, almost an herbs de Provence thing going on while the acidity pops on the back end and the firm base of polished tannins provides ample support. The finish is a bit short, though with sneaky length as the tannins begin to relax and let out a nice finale of watermelon rind freshness and great wild red berry fruit with hints of apple and cranberry to boot. 93pts

Favors of pepper and dark fruits. I'd love to try this with a nice steak.
