Deaver Vineyards Chardonnay With An Attitude 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smells lemony and floral like some Muscat or Viognier made it into the blend. The fruit is citrussy and the nose quite high pitched with salty undertones and a touch of honey, toasted spices and green anise seed. Rich yet lively in the mouth with an impression of sweetness accentuating the deep fruit yellow fruit tones. A mouthfilling wine but well balanced with interesting layers of citrus and peach fruit.. Very clean and crisp on the finish with a touch of lingering almost coffee like toasted spice 88pts

Ken Deaver stoops his broad shoulders to uncork a bottle of Zinfandel, wearing his trade-mark denims and cowboy hat, and you soon learn that Ken knows his wines. And his grapes. A drive over Deaver’s 300 acres will take you past 120-year-old Zinfindel vines and eight acres of Mission vines, so called because they were brought from Mexico by the Jesuits and Franciscans. The Deaver mission vines were planted around 1853 by Ken Deaver's great grandfather John A. Davis. His son, Ken's grandfather, planted the Zinfandel four decades later. For years, the Deaver's "old vine" grapes were sold exclusively to home winemakers. The first vintage of Deaver Vineyards Zinfandel was bottled under the “Lakeshore” label in 1985. Read less
