User Reviews for Zinfandel Bernier Zinyard

Winemaker's Notes:

Technical Data: Composition: 100% Zinfandel, Bernier Zinyard Appellation: Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County Harvest Date: September 13, 2003 Alcohol: 13.7% pH: 3.65 TA: 0.62g/100ml Barrel Aging: 20 months Type of Oak: 100% 3-6 year-old French oak barrels Bottling Date: June 1, 2005 Production: 200 cases Release Date: March 2007 Tasting Notes: At Peterson, we believe everyone should have choices. That's why we make four distinctly different Zinfandels. Our Bernier Zinfandel is for wine lovers who prefer a Zin with grace and fi nesse. We call it the Zin for Pinot Noir lovers. Charming aromas of vanilla and cherry blend with spicy white pepper, tempting you to take a sip. The creamy smooth mouthfeel embraces rich flavors of plum and berry mingled with mocha and white pepper. Tart cherry and earthiness round out the flavors as they unite for the finish. A perfect wine to sip or share with light fare like wild mushroom risotto with smoked chicken or fresh grilled salmon. Vineyard: Why call it a Zinyard? Many vineyards are planted to more than one variety. But Paul and Yael Bernier knew they wanted only Zinfandel grapes growing on their hillside vineyard in Dry Creek Valley. Although it was planted in 1990, the Bernier Zinyard makes old-time growers feel they are walking into the past when they stroll among the vines. It is a traditional dry-farmed vineyard with Italo Sbragio's old clone Zin grafted on to St. George rootstock. That combination embodies the very roots of Dry Creek Valley viticulture and reflects Peterson Winery's values of savoring and embracing time-honored traditions.
