Fetzer Vineyards was founded in 1968 in beautiful Mendocino County by Barney and Kathleen Fetzer.  One of the first California wineries to branch out into serious Chardonnay production, Fetzer remains committed to sustainability and environmentally conscious wine production.  Dennis Martin oversees all wine-making at Fetzer and is assisted by Charlie Gilmore and Michael Chupp, who are in charge of white wine making and red wine making respectively.

  • So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot.  Here's my opening proposal:  We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly.  This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend...

From attending the ZAP Festival in January right up to my recent efforts to pair grilling recipes with Zins, they’ve been a major focus of my recent efforts.

  • Fetzer Zinfandel California Ricetti 1983

    Snoothrank:

    Not particularly aromatic at first though a little spicy and oaky. A bit of air lends this focus and brings out lots of smoke and briar pipe aromas. Smooth with richness still buffering the tannins and acids, which are significant. Lots of raspberry fruit and tobacco early on the palate is followed by a clean, fresh and bracing finish. This is h... Read More

  • Fetzer Zinfandel California Ricetti 1982

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky on the nose with a nice base of black fruit, spicy and a touch of truffle, peppery with a bit of oak still obvious. Smooth and polished in the mouth with a nice core of fading red fruit framed with wood spice and sweet licorice tones. A bit of vanilla and some noticeable astringent tannins still linger on the palate which is followed by a ... Read More
