Winemaker Notes

Number 68 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

This OVOC (old vine old clone) Zinfandel is truly a representative of the Dry Creek Valley. It is sourced from 12 different growers including their own estate vineyard at the southern tip of the appellation, as well as a unique site at the opposite end of the valley, which sits at 800 feet elevation overlooking Lake Sonoma.

This dark rich wine issues ripe blackberry aromas in concert with black spice notes including anise and cola. The mouth feel is soft and juicy with hints of pepper and more blackberry and plum fruit flavors. The toasty oak finish is given a touch of warmth from the 14.2% alcohol. Experience the Zin!

"This is great Zin, filled with personality. Showcases the briary, brambly wild blackberry and blueberry flavors, spices and dusty tannins this appellation is famous for. Finishes dry and smooth. Beautiful and compelling now."

Alderbrook Winery, California
Alderbrook Winery Winery Image
Situated on the outskirts of the city of Healdsburg in California's Sonoma County, the Alderbrook estate is located at the southernmost tip of the Dry Creek Valley, within a stone's throw of the Russian River. On a road map this might not seem significant, but in the world of fine wine, this location is considered one of the best in the region. While technically located in the Dry Creek Valley appellation, the official border of the Russian River Valley appellation begins close to Alderbrook's 65-acre estate, giving the winery a unique position at the confluence of these two valleys.

Not only does the estate vineyard receive the afternoon heat that is typical of Dry Creek Valley weather patterns, but the cool night air creeping up the Russian River Valley from the Pacific Ocean produces evening and early morning fog, cooling the vines. Alderbrook's vineyard enjoys the luxury of extended "hang time." This produces more mature fruit resulting in rich, full-bodied flavor characteristics: qualities which are ultimately apparent in the wines.

"The blend of climates is a gift, and our estate vines benefit tremendously from the unique weather conditions," says general manager, George Christie. Our incredible location at the junction of these two appellations gives us the perfect raw materials for wine making."
