TRES SABORES 2010 RUTHERFORD ZINFANDEL - 750ml
The Rutherford Bench, classic "Cabernet Country" also turns out to be a pretty splendid place to grow and make Zinfandel. Our 2010 wine shines with all of the sumptuous, berry-forward aromas and spicy, black-pepper, white-pepper flavors one would hope for in a Zinfandel. We picked the eight acres of 38 year-old vines in small sections over six dates and fermented each lot in 3/4-ton bins. A few lots were allowed to ferment spontaneously (a process this vineyard loves). All of the wine was aged for 21 months in 40% new oak- French (with a handful of American) barrels. 500 cases made.
Viticulture: Certified organically grown, dry-farmed

WINES OF THE TIMES
Crisp Refreshment in Sauvignon Blanc
Now, the chardonnay producers have pulled back and are making leaner, livelier non-oaky chardonnays. Could it be that many California chardonnays are now trying to capitalize on the success of sauvignon blanc?
Unpretentious sauvignon blancs from Napa and Sonoma Counties, with their suggestions of lemon and herbs, have something to say: bring on the food. These wines have a particular talent for grappling with tricky culinary challenges like bold acid and even sweetness.
I find them as suited as the Italian pinot grigios I like to pour with a Venetian classic, fish in saor. It's a wonderful summer dish, which can be made in advance and left to marinate, then served at room temperature. ''In saor'' refers to the sweet vinegar and onion marinade.
