2011 Knights Valley Zinfandel
California: Sonoma County: Knights Valley
We delight in bringing you wines from the Knights Valley AVA and wines from our friend Tom Meadowcroft - so today we are doubly pleased! Tom’s wines have been very popular with our Operatives and we are thrilled to bring you today’s very highly recommended Zinfandel.
Today’s 2011 Meadowcroft Knights Valley Zinfandel is a lovely, balanced and elegant Zin with great pairing appeal. This delicious wine has plenty of flavor, but it also has a brightness and balance that lends itself to a wide variety of food pairings. The elegant flavors in this wine won’t overpower even your finer food fare. Think Thanksgiving dinner or a rich holiday pot roast with this lovely wine - or enjoy it all on its own. A traditional pairing of zesty BBQ would also be a real treat.
Whether you’re looking for a flexible feasting wine or an elegant solo-sipper, you can’t go wrong with today’s truly exemplary Zinfandel.
Dark, dense ruby core, which falls off at the edges to a slight purple.
Elegant and subdued, with fruity notes of freshly picked dark cherry, tamarind, and slightly smoky plum, all balanced with an earthy fresh spring forest and hints of cedar spice.
Well structured and reserved, leading with pomegranate black tea, smoky plum, and black cherry, with subtle notes of cedar spice, dark caramel, and white pepper.
Well refined and balanced, with the fruit notes transitioning into subtle hints of spice.
Short ribs slowly braised in red wine, served over creamy mashed golden potatoes.
