Starry Night Sonoma County Zinfandel Zinfandel Sonoma County 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a rich, complex wine with bright aromas of berries and plum, and rich flavors of blackberry, plum and white pepper leading to a long and elegant finish that has hints of cedar and cocoa. Fruit from the Russian River Valley provides bright, fresh fruit flavors and Alexander Valley fruit gives the wine spice and depth.

In 2009, Starry Night Winery celebrates its tenth anniversary as a bonded winery! At Starry Night Winery, our goal is to produce the finest wines possible that accentuate the regions from where the grapes are best grown. We currently produce Chardonnay, Syrah and Zinfandels from the Russian River Valley, a Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley, Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley as well as Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Rhone varietals from the Lodi appellation. This year we will be releasing our first vineyard designated Zinfandel from Nervo Station Vineyard in Alexander Valley. The grapes for this wine come from two blocks planted in 1896. In our first year we produced fewer than 1200 cases. Since then we have grown a bit each year and have leveled off our production to about 14,000 cases. Most of our wines are produced in quantities of less than 1,000 cases. By keeping our production small, we are able to pay attention to every detail in the winemaking process and allow the grapes to fully express their terroir. We would describe our winemaking style as minimalist in that we want the wines to make themselves with as little intervention as possible. Read less

This full-bodied Zin is dry and tangy with firm textured tannins that coat the mouth. Coupled with its bright acidity it leaves an almost chewy structure that lingers through to the finish. Expect ripe dark wild bramble fruit including wild blackberry and red cherry and a touch of plum. Spicy white pepper and fresh cut oak supported by this wine’s sturdy and tangy structure. Pair with grilled burgers.
