Sutter Home Red Blend Zinfandel Merlot Moscato Bianco 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Sutter Home Winery:
The history of Sutter Home Winery dates back to the late 1800's, when a Swiss-German immigrant named John Thomann established a small winery and distillery in the heart of California's Napa Valley. Although much has changed for the Trincheros and Sutter Home, the motto and philosophy originated by their father more than a half-century ago remains the same: "A great product for a fair price."

The history of Sutter Home Winery dates back to the late 1800's, when a Swiss-German immigrant named John Thomann established a small winery and distillery in the heart of California's Napa Valley. Although much has changed for the Trincheros and Sutter Home, the motto and philosophy originated by their father more than a half-century ago remains the same: "A great product for a fair price." After resurrecting Sutter Home in 1948, the Trincheros struggled to keep the family winery afloat, imbuing it with the values of hard work, ingenuity, humility and integrity that have characterized them ever since. Each member of the family played a vital role in keeping the business running: Mother Mary Trinchero kept the books, younger children Vera and Roger helped on the bottling line, while older brother Bob assisted his dad, Mario, and uncle John in cleaning out tanks and barrels. The family's cohesion kept Sutter Home together and eventually made it the success it is today. With its creation of White Zinfandel in the early 1970s and the introduction of high-quality, affordably priced varietal wines during the 1980s and '90s, Sutter Home became a household name and the second largest, independent family-run winery in the U.S. Read less

Light cherry fruit on the nose, the wine is simple, plain and has a fake, saccharine, flavor. Great for a sangria mix.

Il Vitigno "Kerner" è stato creato nel 1929 in Germania da August Herold incrociando Schiava Grossa e Riesling. Il nome Kerner deriva da Justinus Kerner, medico e poeta tedesco. Profumi Profumo inteso, spesso con un tono di moscato; aromi freschi offrono un gustoso mix di frutta mista bianca, con note di mela, pompelmo e un soffio tropicale di mango. Gusto Simile al Riesling, fresco e fruttato, di minor acidità ma con più corpo.

For the price, this one was surprising! A softer zinfandel than maybe is the norm but that was right up my alley. As soon as I finished this bottle, I wished I had had another to open. It was fruit forward in both aroma and the first taste, from them it opened into spice and soft oak and tannins. Just made you want to take another sip!

It tastes like concentrated grape juice, with a lot of water. Very sweet. I wouldn't recommend it.

Apollonia White 2007 - Château Capion: Apollonia White 2007 - Weißwein von Château CapionHier trifft der Weingenießer auf eine wunderbare Komposition aus zwei traditionellen weißen Rebsorten, jede mit ihren unverwechselbaren, aromatischen Besonderheiten. Zum einen der Chardonnay, er zählt zu den ganz großen der Welt. Eine ausgeprägte Frucht und ein anhaltender, würziger Nachhall machen seinen Reiz so unverkennbar. Kraftvoll und elegant trifft er auf die zweitbedeutendste weiße Rebsorte, Sauvignon Blanc, er bringt die erfrischende Zitrusnote mit grasigen Nuancen hervor.In seiner Grazie ist unverkennbar der mediterrane Charakter des Terroirs um den Fluss Herault im Languedoc. Der Apollonia White 2007 ist herrlich zu Fisch, Meeresfrüchten, hellen Geflügelgerichten oder Ziegenkäse zu genießen.

Fresh, ripe strawberry and an alkaline note rise from the glass of Christoffel's 2007 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett. This shows less pure pizzazz than the corresponding Treppchen, but here saline, alkaline, and stony nuances enter into a shimmering interchange with the fruit and the finish floats away slowly and delicately, with well-judged, barely noticeable sweetness.

The 2007 Cumberland Reserve is dark ruby in color with deep red reflections at the rim of the glass. The perfume is, as always, complex with great spice notes, minerality, coffee and chocolate undertones and a great vein of dark red fruits such as black cherry and black raspberry. The attack is full of fruit and very supple with suave tannins and silkiness in the mid-palate and finish. This wine exudes the great possibilities that were achievable during the long and cool 2007 vintage and will drink very well now and for ten years to come if cellared carefully.

Die reifen Trauben ergeben einen kraftvollen Wein mit intensiver Beerenaromatik, der von einer ausgeprägten Weichheit im Gaumen abgerundet wird.

Tasting Notes:

The grapes for this Zinfandel come from Amador County, which is one of California’s most recognized and prestigious Zinfandel growing regions. Sutter Home’s first wines, produced in the late 1940s, were made from Amador Zinfandel grapes and the winery continues these traditions today. Amador County’s warm days and cool nights produce the finest Zinfandel, rich with smooth fruit-forward characteristics.
