The Fall 2017 Wine Club Selection is here!

There’s a shift in the air. You can feel the energy in the Sonoma Valley building in anticipation of the upcoming harvest. Due to an extremely warm summer, we chose to delay leafing, a process where some leaves are plucked from the vine to help the maturation process. We left the leaves on to provide some shade for the grapes and reduce the chance of sunburn. Both Winemaker Cecilia Valdivia and Vineyard Manager Ricardo Juarez agree: This year’s crop of our estate Syrah, which is biodynamically and organically farmed, is looking quite promising. The grapes wait patiently to begin their journey from vine to bottle. In this selection, we’ve included a delightful mix old and new friends to come together to welcome you to the 2017 Deerfield Ranch Winery harvest. Make sure to let the wines recover from their voyage before opening once they arrive.

Enjoy!

Cheers,

Bridget Waldele

2011 @Cabernet
Sonoma County

Two Bottles

The 2011 @Cabernet has everything and more than you expect from a Cabernet.  Cabernet is the dominant flavor and forms the foundation and long finish. The Cabernet Franc adds a dark chocolate nuance and the Merlot fills the middle palate. The Petit Verdot adds a spice, and the Malbec adds blackberry flavors to the blend.

2012 Estate Syrah
Sonoma Valley

Two Bottles

This Syrah is from the organic vineyard in front of the winery.  Syrah’s flavor profile generally focuses near the bottom of the palate, grounded and earthy. This one is different.  It shows generous dark berry flavors in the center of the palate, expanding in all directions

2011 Old Vine Zinfandel
Buchignani-Garcia Vineyard
Dry Creek Valley

Two Bottles

This dry farmed 135 year old Buchignani/Garcia Vineyard is still farmed by the same family. It produces the most incredibly complex Old Vine Zinfandel. This powerful wine packs a punch, yet it is remarkably smooth. Its rich flavors taste of toasted caramel, chocolate, and dark brambly fruit. We have been making the Old Vine Zinfandel from this vineyard for over 35 years. This wine is the perfect ending to the evening and pairs well with chocolate.

2013 Sangiovese
Sonoma Valley

Two Bottles

75% Sangiovese, 8% Zinfandel, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot

Sangiovese is the national grape of Italy and it grows everywhere. Americans are still getting to know this delicious varietal that emotes roses and ripe strawberries. We’ve been making Sangiovese from Dan Sanchez’s mountain top vineyard for 11 years. We blended in small amounts of a few varietals to accentuate the fruit flavor of the Sangiovese and give the wine a longer finish. The wine was aged 40 months in used oak barrels, producing subtle influence of oak flavor and a big influence on smoothness. The flavors explode in the middle of your palate leaving no place untouched.  Or 2013 Sangiovese pairs beautifully with Italian cuisine. It is ready to drink now and our Clean Wine® techniques assures that this wine will remain delicious well into the 2020’s.

2012 Cabernet Franc
Sonoma Valley

Two Bottles

76% Cabernet Franc, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, 4% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot

The wine was aged for 36 months in a combination of new and seasoned French and American oak barrels. This dense, concentrated Cabernet Franc displays a wealth of intense black cherry, blackberry aromas. Rounded it on the palate, the wine reveals complex layers of luscious black fruit flavors that meld with oak nuances and polished, ripe tannins throughout a remarkably persistent finish.
