95 Points From The Connoisseur's Guide of California


May 06, 2009


We are so pleased to learn that our new vineyard designate Zinfandels received high ratings from the Connoisseur's Guide of California. 

2007 Bernier Sibary Zinfandel  Our 2007 Bernier Sibary Zinfandel received 95 pts.  "10% Carignane and Mataro; 10% Petite Sirah.  Sweet, slightly juicy blackberry fruit is overlain by a hint of milk chocolate and creamy oak in the involving aromas of this deep and well-extracted opus, and its intense, wonderfuly rich flavors follow suit with a wealth of well-defined berries leading the way.  Supple, slightly fleshy in feel and fairly full-bodied, the wine does a remarkable balancing act between ripeness and classic varietal fruit, and it deftly buffers its scant closing heat with substance to spare." -Connoisseurs Guide to California Wine, May 2009

2007 Bill's Block Maple Vineyard Zinfandel   Our 2007 Maple Vineyard Bill's Block Zinfandel received 91 pts. " 4% Petite Sirah; 4% Carignane.  The better of the winery's duo from the very highly regarded Maple Vineyard, this selection from Bill's Block is a big wine of no-hold-barrel richness and extravagantly ripe fruit.  It is surprisingly juicy given its unabashed ripeness, and its inklings of heat are tempered by unstinting themes of succulent berries.  Its greatest virtue, however, is that of very good balance, and, if still a bit rough at the edges, it is certain to find further polish over the next several years."  -Connoisseur's Guide to California Wine, May 2009
