Tasting Notes: One of the labels owned by Truett-Hurst, Inc., Bradford Mountain was founded in the late 1990s and produces about 3,000 cases of wine per year. It lies on the western side of the Dry Creek Valley (Sonoma County), a region renowned for its Zinfandels. Some of the fruit that goes into the 2011 Dry Creek Zinfandel comes from the winery’s historic Grist Vineyard, which was replanted in 2005 and is now certified organic. The wine boasts fragrant raspberry and herbal aromas that continue on the palate. It is a rich, jammy wine showing good balance and supple tannins.
