Last night we dressed up the barrel room and kicked off ZinFest Weekend with a wine dinner crafted by local Chef Michael Midgley of Midgley’s Public House.
Joined by 70 guests from near and far (Colorado, Canada, even Ireland!) we indulged in six courses each paired with our family wines. In honor of the Zinfandel-centric weekend, we poured our 2011 Centennial Zinfandel with a sweet and spicy jerk chicken which was an unexpectedly fantastic pairing.
And just to add something special, we also dug into the library holdings to sample some of our first Single Barrel offerings, the 2006 and 2007 Single Barrel Petit Verdot. Guests enjoyed these two vintages paired with petite filet drizzled with a reduction made from the 2007 Single Barrel Petit Verdot.
Not wanting to leave out our loyal Wine Club, we'd like to share the wines with those of you who could not attend last night’s dinner. The next time you will have the opportunity to purchase these wines may not be until the holidays when we plan to release a limited number of Single Barrel Library Collections.
Order your library releases here:
2006 Single Barrel Petit Verdot $55.00 Retail / $44.00 Club
2007 Single Barrel Petit Verdot $55.00 Retail / $44.00 Club
