Winemaker Notes

Tempting aromas of dark spicy mixed berries and plum blend with hints of vanillin oak and dusty tannins creating an almost perfumey essence. The smooth entry slides into a delicious mix of spice and fruit - blackberry, blueberry, mulberry, plum, strawberry and more - surrounded by a gentle oak and tannic structure with just a hint of earthiness.

This easy sipper will pair with almost anything you enjoy eating, from pizza to puttanesca or rib eye steak to dry rubbed ribs; everything tastes great with this Zin.

Blend: 83% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah, 4% Carignane

Wine Enthusiast
A tang of black cherry and citrus elevates the palate of this light-bodied wine, which is soft and well integrated in terms of oak and tannin. With 10% Petite Sirah and 8% Carignane, it's strong in leather and black pepper, with a lean, juicy finish.

Peterson Winery, California
Peterson Winery Winery Image
Peterson Winery, located off Lytton Springs Road just north of Healdsburg, California (Sonoma County), is recognizable by the large red barn at the end of a vineyard-lined road. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the geography of Northern California, Healdsburg is about 75 miles north of San Francisco.

Peterson Winery grew out of the vineyards that now supply us with grapes. That may seem unusual, but my background is not just in winemaking but it is also in grape growing, otherwise known as viticulture. That is why I refer to myself as a winegrower. For me making great wine is about the grapes -- where and how they were grown, what the weather conditions were and how the vineyards were managed during the growing season. Before I digress too much, let me give you a quick overview of how Peterson Winery came to be.

I came to Dry Creek Valley in 1983, working with my partner, Bill Hambrecht, to find and develop world-class vineyard properties. It was exciting to be able to select ideal vineyard locations and then plant the appropriate grape variety and clone for that growing region. Once the vineyards came into production, we had amazing fruit being produced in our Dry Creek Valley (Sonoma County) vineyards and our Mendocino County Floodgate Vineyard. The next step was a natural one. I wanted to make wine from the fruits of my labor. (Sorry about the pun, it was too good to pass up.)

In 1987, all the pieces fell into place and Peterson Winery was born. We now produce 5000 cases annually, mostly in small lots.
