Tom Eddy Zinfandel Port Dessert Wine Sierra Foothills 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Zinfandel Port benefited greatly from late summer heat. Dark and brooding, this rich and luscious wine is reminiscent of old World Portuguese Ruby ports, but with the zesty, spicy, ruby red fruit of Berry-bright Zinfandel. The rich mouth feel is powerful and sweet, but not cloying. Perfect sugar and acid balance make this wonderful wine truly collectable. Alcohol 19.5%. Residual sugar 12.9% 150 cases produced.

Success in handcrafting wines can only come from using the finest grapes and the best techniques in the artful hands of a skilled winemaker. There are no shortcuts. And when your name is on every bottle, every bottle is your baby. It’s no wonder that quality and attention to detail are our mantras, from the vineyard to the barrel right down to the hand-applied label on the bottle. Producing less than 1500 cases annually of hillside Cabernet Sauvignon, we strive for elegance, structure and balance to create wines that are approachable now but beg for cellaring. Aging our Cabs two years in French oak plus an additional year in the bottle we believe is an integral part of what makes beautiful wines that are classically balanced and delicious with food. Making wine has been, and always will be, our passion, our work and our play. But as we dedicate ourselves to quality in our wines, we are acutely cognizant that it’s also about the journey: relationships created, wines shared, concern for our community and the environment; sprinkled with lots of laughter. Our goal is a life well lived, with honesty, humility and integrity, all of which we hope translates into our wine. Read less
