Winemaker's Notes:

This isn't the kind of Zin that explodes on the palate—instead, it makes a dynamic entrance and keeps on coming. After enticing the nose with aromas of dark chocolate, blueberry pie, licorice and coriander, the 2006 Dry Creek Zinfandel unfolds on the palate with flavors of dried dark cherry and plum. A soft, velvety mouth feel and balanced finish round out the picture. Enjoy through 2013.
My Notes:

About Bradford Mountain:

Bradford Mountain Winery was born out of owner George Hambrecht’s belief that there was something beguilingly distinct about the fruit from his family’s Bradford Mountain vineyards. Planted on a mountain plateau 1000 feet above the Dry Creek Valley floor, the vines produce a low-yielding crop of intensely-flavored grapes with an irresistible wild, brambly flair. Once sold to some of California’s most celebrated wineries, they deserved to be bottled independently, and given the opportunity to tell the story of this unusual and remarkable terroir.
