Dehlinger Zinfandel Dehlinger Zinfandel Guadagni Bros. Dry Creek 2009

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

The 2009 Zinfandel Guadagni Brothers is an attractive, juicy wine layered with plums, dark red fruit and licorice. High-toned floral notes and a hint of white pepper add lift on the finish. The blend includes 13% Petite Sirah. This is a totally inviting, vinous red best enjoyed in its exuberant youth. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2017.

The grapes for Dehlinger Wines are all grown on our Estate Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. The initial vines were planted in 1975 and followed by subsequent planting through the early 1990s. We are currently initiating a vineyard redevelopment on several of our vineyard blocks. In-house Vineyard Manager Marty Hedlund has been over-seeing the 45 acres of vines since 1988. Hedlund works with the vineyard crew to ensure that each area of the vineyard is appropriatedly pruned, managed, and thinned to bring out the potential of each peice of soil. The entire vineyard has been retrained to a "lyre"-shaped split-canopy, vertical shoot-positioned trellis system which allows for superior light penetration to the fruiting zone and systematic hand care.

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

The rare Zinfandel with focus and structure, offering aromas of wild berry and pepper, with complex flavors of baked black cherry and smoky spice. Drink now through 2017.
