Winemaker Notes

An exemplary expression of the Dry Creek Valley, this well-structured Zinfandel opens with notes of ripe, black cherry and raspberry jam. Rich mocha and caramel flavors meld with a touch of cedar and spice on the palate, culminating in a lingering, fruit-filled finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A killer value, the 2012 Zinfandel Reserve (96% Zinfandel and 4% Petite Sirah that achieved 14.6% alcohol) was aged in a combination of French and American oak. It possesses excellent density as well as lots of peppery, briery, meaty fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a soft, round finish.

Frei Brothers  Winery Image
In the late 1880s, an enterprising Swiss immigrant by the name of Andrew Frei gazed upon the rolling hills, gentle streams, and fertile soil of Sonoma County and saw a wine glass of opportunity. By 1890, he was the proud owner of a 344 acre vineyard in northern Sonoma, giving birth to a winemaking tradition that is very much alive today.

Frei didn't waste any precious time once he acquired the land. By 1895, he was producing 20,000 cases of high quality wine that was stored in huge redwood casks.

In spite of a devastating blight of phylloxera, by 1904 the winery had actually increased in size and production. Now in his seventies, Frei turned the business over to his two sons, Walter and Louis. In 1903, the winery was officially named Frei Bros.

The Frei Bros. Winery continued to grow over the years, in spite of disasters such as the one that occurred in 1919, when a curious piece of legislation that came to be known as Prohibition put many an American winery out of business.

Again, the Frei family persevered, and now you can taste the legacy of a great winemaking tradition in Frei Brothers Reserve, a new release that combines the spirit of old world winemaking techniques with grapes that are hand selected from some of Sonoma's finest vineyards.
