    Winemaker Notes

    Our Copa de Morado, or "Cup of Purple," is a sweet dessert wine made from Zinfandel grapes from one hundred-year-old vines. The grapes were crushed, then fermented on the skins for six days, during which time the cap was vigorously punched down to extract the color and flavor. Once 60 percent of the sugar was fermented, grape spirits were added to raise the alcohol to 20%, thereby stopping the fermentation and preserving the remaining sweetness. The wine was then pressed to barrels and aged for two years. In Portugal where this style of wine originated, the flavor of the fortifying spirits contributes significantly to the flavor of the wine. In contrast, we have chosen to use relatively neutral grape spirits in order to emphasize the delightful bright aromas and rich berry flavors that are unique to Zinfandel.

    We particularly enjoy serving the Copa de Morado with chocolate desserts, cheesecake, and candied nuts.

    Dynamite Vineyards, Sonoma County, California
    With its name inspired by the method that workers used to create the original vineyard site on the rocky slopes of the Sonoma Valley, Dynamite Vineyards captured the public’s imagination when its 1991 vintage was released. More importantly, with their full-flavored character, approachable style and unbeatable value, Dynamite Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were soon winning awards and fans.

    As consumer demand grew for these impressive wines, Dynamite Vineyards gradually expanded its vineyard sources to include grapes grown throughout the North Coast (Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake Counties), primarily in mountain vineyards. In order to support its continued growth, Dynamite will soon move to a new facility close to vineyards in Lake County’s highly regarded Red Hills growing area. The colorful Dynamite Vineyards labels change each vintage while the wine maintains consistent quality and superb value.
