Something to Add to Your Wine Cellar

Vintage Cellars is not just about custom built wine cellars and wine storage equipment, it’s about wine.  Though I have not yet made it to every wine region of the world (a lofty goal, I know), I like to have my palate travel to each region 1 bottle at a time.

Currently, I’m spending the early summer months enjoying Zinfandels of Northern California.  This past weekend, I opened a gem.  The 2004 Yoakim Bridge Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel was everything I wanted it to be.  A rare find unless someone has pointed it out, Yoakim Bridge is not distributed nationally.  It’s a quaint family-owned vineyard and winery in the heart of the Dry Creek Valley.  This vintage has been in my wine cabinet for the past 3 years and I thought it was about time to give it a try.  I was not disappointed in this big, rich Zin with layers upon layers of black berry fruit and spice.

If you can find a bottle, I highly recommend you buy 3: 1 to enjoy now and 2 for the cellar.  I still have 3 bottles of this excellent Zinfandel left and on the perfect occasion, maybe with Steak Diane or some sirloin tips in a mushroom reduction sauce, I will enjoy again.

    That sounds like an excellent wine. I hope to try one soon. I might even get to try it with Steak Diane too….if I am lucky.

    This is a well structured wine that epitomizes the zinfandel grape. Get some if you can!
