2009 Berryessa Gap Zinfandel

A beautiful sunny Sunday has come to an end and I'm celebrating the day with a glass of a product of that sun, a wonderful Zinfandel from the Berryessa Gap Winery.  Raisins, dark fruit and vanilla from the oak aging characterize this vintage from the winery in Winters, California.
Nice perfume too.  You need to stick your nose into this one!

Head over to their website and order yourself some ------  Berryessa Gap

A nice quote from the website's Blog - March 28th, 2012 entry:

"Sitting inside watching the “we need it” rain come down and prepare the soil for early spring growth. The buds of some grape varieties have already started growing and most of the fruit trees have blossomed. We are once again at the beginning of a season and anticipation is high. As soon as I write that it sounds redundant, seems I am always looking with hopeful expectation. We are pruning, we are harvesting, we are blending, we are bottling and we are meeting people. The list goes on. In this season of rebirth it is, perhaps, easier to get excited but reasons are always there. Pay attention to the things around you (they are wonderful) and welcome the future."
