Joe Wagner, som står bag Caymus, er også ejer og winemaker på Beran. Og man er ikke i tvivl om at vinen laves af de samme hænder....Beran Sonoma County Zinfandel er en klassisk zinfandel. Denne Cuvée har lidt mere elegance end Beran California Zinfandel, men du er ikke i tvivl om at det er Caymus familien som står bag. Masser af frisk blåbær tærte, mørk chokolade af godt med vanilie.
In making Beran Sonoma County Zinfandel, we had the pleasure to work with some of the region’s most highly regarded Zinfandel vineyards; including those of Peter Haywood in the Moon Mountain district, Alan Foppiano’s vineyard that straddles Alexander and Russian River Valleys, and Frank Rebottaro’s Alexander Valley vineyard.

Grapes achieved intensity of flavor and expressed the characteristics of their individual terroir. With a dry, warm spring, prompting early bud-break, followed by a textbook summer, free of any heat spikes, we were exceptionally happy with the high quality and abundant
Beran Sonoma County Zinfandel 2013 is a great addition to the Beran portfolio.
It shows all the classic characters that Moon Mountain and Alexander Valley Zinfandels are known for. We created an elegant, complex, and beautifully structured Zinfandel by picking the grapes at optimal ripeness, then following that with extended fruit maceration of up to 30 days. The wine rested for 12 months in a combination of American and French oak before bottling.
