Saucelito Canyon Zinfandel Arroyo Grande Valley Estate Reserve 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The Zinfandel Reserve is composed of a handful of barrels that were cellared and blended separately to exemplify the best of the vintage. It begins with deep aromas of black cherry, boysenberry pie, sage blossom, leather and cassis. A fruit-forward entry offers intense flavors of dried cranberry and cherry with a full mid-palate and a lingering blueberry impression. Recommended pairings include duck, creamy polenta, caramelized onion torte or a bit of dark chocolate.

Saucelito Canyon Vineyards:
We try and pick some fruit that’s in the brighter flavors of strawberry and raspberry. That develops at around 21 to 22.5 Brix," Bill said. "Then later we’ll pick some at 23 to 24 Brix. That’s the more blackberry, black cherry flavors. And then we’ll pick the rest at 26 to 27 to get the prune and plum flavors that are often associated with Zinfandel. So we get this whole different layering of flavors so that the wine has a lot of complexity

92 points. The aroma opens with an almost gamey quality, with a generous amount of suede and a hint of smoke. Black currant and black cherry preserves, roasted coffee beans, a faint hint of truffles make this an excitingly complex, fascinating wine to sit and sniff. At first sip the palate is deep and smoky and full of black leather tones. The mid palate is dominated by dark cherry, and tawny elements of soil and tamarind mixed with vanilla bean, blackberry and blackcurrant preserves, and a touch of cream. The finish lingers and evolves beginning with dried orange peel, moving into lavender and Saucelito Canyon’s signature violet flavor, with a soft touch of rosemary toward the end. This is a very complex, multilayered, and continually developing wine.
