Below is the August, 2007 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:


2003 Bradford Mountain Winery

Grist Vineyard Zinfandel

Dry Creek Valley

Healdsburg, Sonoma County, California


2003 Bradford Mountain ZinfandelPlanted on a mountain plateau 1000 feet above the Dry Creek Valley floor, Bradford Mountain Winery's 100+ year-old, head-pruned, dry-farmed Zinfandel vines produce a low-yielding crop of intensely-flavored grapes with an irresistible wild, brambly flair. Previously sold to some of California’s most celebrated wineries, owner George Hambrecht believed they deserved to be bottled independently, so in October 1998, they crushed 56 tons of fruit to be used for their first vintage.

This wine is composed of 100% organic Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel grapes. The main factor that differentiates an organic from a non-organic vineyard is the use of chemicals. An interesting fact about the use of chemicals for agricultural application is that it is a very recent development. Chemical sprays were developed for agricultural use in the mid 1940's as an alternative use for the chemical surplus left over from World War II. Prior to this all farming was "organic".

The wine was aged in 62% French oak and 38% American oak for 14 months and shows the intensity typical of mountain fruit. The red and black fruits are amplified by the natural spiciness of the varietal. This wine is an excellent representation of the Zinfandel grape which has made the Dry Creek Valley famous.
