Winery Tasting Notes
GARRISON CREEK CELLARS 2007 Zinfandel Walla Walla Valley
Zinfandel is a relatively rare variety in Washington vineyards; this 2007 vintage is our second  from our estate vineyard, Les Collines. Our winemaking goal for this wine was to showcase the bright berry fruit that is characteristic of Zinfandels, and then add warm, spicy notes with barrel aging. We aged this vintage in new French oak barrels for 19 months, and then bottled it at the end of May 2009. A year and a half of bottle aging followed, and the resulting wine has a very pleasing, full finish.  

Cases produced: 150

Vineyard: Les Collines
Release date: December 2010
Barrel aging: 19 months new French oak
Alcohol: 15.4% by volume

Winemaker notes: Generous notes of raspberry and strawberry jam in the nose; a medium-full, supple body is balanced by firm acidity, making it a versatile wine to pair with fine meals.

Price per Bottle: $55
Case: $594 (reflects 10% case discount)
