|Grilled Angus ribeye, onions and a Peterson Zinfandel - in January!|
A Chilean Cabernet perhaps? Maybe, a big California meritage-style wine would be a great match with the steak and evening sipper. On the third shelf of the rack was two bottles of Peterson Dry Creek Sonoma Bradford Mountain Zinfandel. It was a gift through a work contact. That sounded great so one was opened and decanted a bit.
It was big and beautifully rich red wine that really hit the spot. It is a blend with mostly Zin, and just sa splach of Carignane, and Mouvredre. It has pretty serious alcohol at 15 percent.
The quality of small production wines are tough to beat. Peterson made just 375 cases of this wine from the 2010 vintage.
I visited Peterson briefly during a spring 2012 visit to Sonoma. It is in the same hilltop location with Indiana's Erik Miller's Kokomo Vineyards and a couple of other tasting rooms.
Peterson Winery, Dry Creek, Bradford Mountain Zinfandel, $38, Very Highly Recommended.
