Incredible reviews from The Wine Spectator on four of our 2012 Zinfandels. Here's a little snapshot on the 2012 growing season:
The 2012 vintage of California Zinfandel delivers a great big hug of bold fruit. And it’s about time—that power was sorely missed in 2010 and 2011.
It was all about the weather. The 2012 growing season was almost Zen-like in its ease, marking a significant change from the challenges of the previous two years. It was a long, gently warm summer and fall in Northern California, without extreme heat or the threat of rain.
We are excited to present our inaugural winemaker dinner on Thursday, September 4th @ 7pm, at one of Alameda's very best restaurants - Trabocco! Chef and Owner Giuseppe Naccarelli's restaurant recently was awarded Open Table's Top 10 Diner's Choice Hot Spots as well as a Reader's Choice, Best New Restaurant, from Oakland Magazine. Giuseppe has customized a fantastic menu to pair with our wines and Jeff will be giving diners a sneak peak at our 2013 Cassata 'Orcio' Zinfandel - a unique wine aged completely in our clay amphora. Space is limited to 15 people.
