Fetzer Zinfandel Mendocino County Home Vineyard Fetzer Vineyards 1980

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

At KL's rooftop party this was popped and poured. Somewhat ungiving aromatically with arth, redwood, and faint notes of fruit but in the mouth there was fresh structure with good balance, supportive acidity and some round tannins buffered by cedary fruit that was a bit anonymous but complex anough and rich enough to be interesting and worth drinking. Pretty remarkable bottle of young vine zin!

Fetzer Vineyards:
Fetzer Vineyards was founded in 1968 in beautiful Mendocino County by Barney and Kathleen Fetzer.  One of the first California wineries to branch out into serious Chardonnay production, Fetzer remains committed to sustainability and environmentally conscious wine production.  Dennis Martin oversees all wine-making at Fetzer and is assisted by Charlie Gilmore and Michael Chupp, who are in charge of white wine making and red wine making respectively.
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.
