Sbragia Gino's Vineyard Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The La Promessa is an elegant, softer Zinfandel with attractive aromas of sun-ripened raspberries. Flavors of ripe cherries and hint of tart red fruit are accentuated by great acidity and a medium body.

Sbragia Family Vineyards:
I've had for some time, a small, family-owned winery making limited, individual lots of wine from grapes grown in select blocks of my favorite vineyards. I've always had one foot in Sonoma and the other in Napa. Both areas mean a lot to me emotionally. I'm more attached to Dry Creek because it's where I raised my kids.

I've had for some time, a small, family-owned winery making limited, individual lots of wine from grapes grown in select blocks of my favorite vineyards. I've always had one foot in Sonoma and the other in Napa. Both areas mean a lot to me emotionally. I'm more attached to Dry Creek because it's where I raised my kids. But the wines that I've made at Beringer are like children, so Napa is also a very special place for me. Either way, the wines are intensely personal, an expression not only of terroir, but of my family's winemaking heritage. -Ed Sbragia   Come visit us at our beautiful location at the end of Dry Creek Road. Our winery is perched on a hillside, overlooking the entire valley with sweeping views from our terrace. Guests are invited to bring a picnic or purchase light deli items from our tasting room and enjoy the sunshine and vineyard views. Seated Terrace Tastings are now available by appointment. Sbragia Family Vineyards prides itself on its single vineyard varietals and small case production. Varieties include Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. Most of the wines are made from vineyards owned by the Sbragia family, but do include select vineyards from Sonoma and Napa Valley as well. Our wines have received many accolades and are considered some of California’s best. The only thing better than the view is the wine! Read less

The color of the 2007 Sbragia Family Zinfandel Italo's Vineyard, showed a brilliant ruby red. The nose opened fresh, showing a mix of wild berries, primarily blue but ever changing with each sniff. A floral component came forward with time and a hint of undergrowth, sweet caramel and coffee bean, which added masses of depth. On the full, rich palate, I found candied blackberry and cola, playing a sweet & sour act and carrying this wines 14.5% alcohol flawlessly. The finish was fresh and long, showing dried cherries.

WS 93 Pts - Winery Tasting Notes - This vineyard (and wine) name. The Promise. in Italian. was chosen for the promise I made to my father to continue our family's winemaking traditions. This vineyard is located adjacent to our winery in Dry Creek on a rocky southwest facing slope in arguably the warmest part of the Dry Creek Valley. It is a young vineyard. planted only in 1999 and 2006 is the first vintage we vinified.



The La Promessa is an elegant, softer Zinfandel with attractive aromas of sun-ripened raspberries. Flavors of ripe cherries and hint of tart red fruit are accentuated by great acidity and a medium body.
