The Real Deal

In the famous Dry Creek Valley, at the northern end of Sonoma County, sits Bradford Mountain. This, the tallest of the surrounding hills, is just 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean, whose early evening fog cools the grapes that have been ripening in the sun. This cycle of cooling and ripening gives the fruit here a special advantage over valley floor fruit. It is the stress of this cycle that gives the grapes their special character.

Today’s wine; Peterson Winery 2011 Bradford Mountain Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, is loaded with character. The wine shows a delightful balance of fruit and savory elements, making it a uniquely delicious delight.

Enjoy this very food-friendly wine with a variety of pairings. We suggest a roast, an herb chicken or pork chops with rosemary. Yum!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep garnet with a slightly opaque heart. When swirled, tall, wine-stained tears cling to the glass.

Smell:

Sweet spiced cherry and braised blackberry in front, followed by savory herbs, cedar, plum, black tea leaf, berry bramble and a hint of green peppercorn.

Taste:

Complex and dense, with flavors of stewed plum, black cherry and cassis. These are underpinned by savory mixed herbs, cherry compote, braised plum and sweet cedar.

Finish:

Long and mouthwatering, supported by integrated tannins.

Pairing:

Enjoy this wine with a savory chicken dish or a pot roast with potatoes and carrots.
