Starry Night Winery
2010 Nervo Station Zinfandel
California: Sonoma County: Alexander Valley
So long, Ridge...
We are always impressed with wines from Starry Night. Especially their wonderful Zinfandels.
Today marks the 4th time we have featured a new vintage of Starry’s flagship Zin, the wonderful 2010 Nervo Station Zinfandel. This wine hails from a superb Alexander Valley Vineyard that formerly belonged to the world-famous Ridge Vineyards winery.
With each new vintage of this wine, winemaker Todd Graff, shows not not his skills, but also the further development of the Nervo Station vineyard. This vintage is youthful and ready to drink. It also shows great potential for the next few years.
Decant for best results. Enjoy this wine on its own or with a wide array of rich or spicy foods. We recommend sweet and tangy BBQ spareribs for a true treat!
Dark, deep ruby with lovely pinkish edging. Tall, skinny legs fall swiftly down the glass when swirled.
Sweet boysenberry syrup, cherry compote, dried thyme, light white pepper, black licorice, saddle leather and dry potting soil.
Concentrated and dark with black fruit, leather, dark spice and white pepper. As the wine opens, it reveals flavors of dried fall leaves, baking spice and black cherry.
Medium long in length with bold tannins and bright acids that frame the fruit, driving flavors to the far corners of the palate.
