Valdez Family Winery Zinfandel Russian River Valley Landy Vineyard 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The vineyards are planted on a beautiful rolling hillside near Occidental, a unique little town in Northwest Sonoma County. As unique as the nearby town, Ulises Valdez discovered a vineyard equally as unique with varied micro-climates and soils. On the very top of its ridge, was rich reddish soil with a southern sun exposure protected from the coastal winds that just cried out for Zinfandel. He surrendered to the cry and planted a couple of acres of the 100-year-old St. Peters cloned vines. The results are a delicately well-balanced Zinfandel, rich in varietal character, a tribute to the Valdez family passion for the vineyards.

Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

These wines will not last long, they have a huge following and super small production... 90 points - Wine Spectator: Dense and jam-packed with fruit, showing huckleberry cobbler aromas and ripe, layered plum, blueberry, white pepper and mineral flavors that finish with balanced tannins. Best from 2011 through 2016. 395 cases made
