Winemaker Notes

A classic Dry Creek Valley Old Vine Zinfandel. Deep in color with concentrated flavors, this wine expresses raspberries and spice on the the nose. The savory mouthfeel is full, the flavors of cinnamon and cherry. Subdued oak and soft tannins enhance the ripe varietal fruit character on the finish.

Food Pairing: Braised Short Ribs with Chocolate and Rosemary.

Wine Enthusiast
The 2007 Old Vine Zinfandel has concentrated dark fruit aromas of jammy black cherry and cassis along with spicy notes of white pepper and truffle laced with vanilla. This full figured wine is big, ripe and expressive. Soft tannins, warm notes of caramel, melts in your mouth for a long, lusty finish.

Pezzi King Winery Image
Ken and Diane Wilson first made a name for themselves specializing in Dry Creek Valley Zinfandels. Thus the purchase of Pezzi King Vineyards was an ideal match for the Wilson family's philosophy of producing small quantities of high-end, handcrafted wines. The Wilsons, who are the owners of two other highly regarded Zinfandel-producing small wineries, Wilson Winery and Mazzocco Sonoma, are thrilled to have this 137 acre farm set in the hills above Dry Creek Valley. At the heart of this beautiful property are the vineyards, 65 acres of world-class Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon - which allow the Wilsons to continue their commitment to producing only the finest wines possible while investing in the personal relationships with their clientele through priviate wine club participation.

Ken Wilson commented that, ""I've always admired Jim Row and the Pezzi King wines, especially the estate Zinfandels. Pezzi King changed the way we looked at Zinfandel and turned the local winemaking world upside down with its 1995 Zin. Its rich, jammy, and fruit-forward style became the new standard of excellence in Zins.""

No where in America are conditions better suited to producing world-class Zinfandels than Pezzi King's home: Dry Creek Valley."

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel is often thought of as California’s flagship grape. In fact it owns this title by having the ability to adapt to the states’ many microclimates and landscapes, producing unique expressions of the grape throughout. Zinfandel thrives in California’s Central Coast, as well throughout Sonoma County, parts of Napa Valley, the Sierra Foothills, Lodi and Paso Robles.

Zinfandel was born in Croatia and later made its way to southern Italy where it became known as Primitivo. The astute imperial nursery of Vienna collected specimens of the vine and acted as the source of its journey to New England, carried by George Gibbs circa 1829. Eventually, making its way to California around the Gold Rush of 1849, Zinfandel found its new home, parading the true American spirit.

Tasting Notes for Zinfandel

Zinfandel is a dry red wine, though typically forward in fruit. Notes of dark plum, blackberry, sweet spice, dark chocolate and licorice are common. Very ripe examples may express a dried fruit quakity like fig or prune. But Zinfandel grown in cooler, coastal zones often shows red fruit, black pepper and fresh herbal characteristics like juniper and menthol.

Perfect Food Pairings for Zinfandel

Zinfandel is a powerfully flavored wine, mingling happily with bold food like brisket, lamb shanks, pork ribs or anything barbecued. More delicate Zins work with pork, lamb curry and even Ceasar Salad or Salad Nicoise.

Sommelier Secrets for Zinfandel

Thanks to its popularity both for home winemaking and as communion wine, many Zinfandel vines were able to survive prohibition, leading to the abundance of "old vine" Zinfandels. These low-yielding, ancient vines tend to produce wine that is deeply concentrated, delicately perfumed and decidedly complex.
