"Harvesting for this Zinfandel begins before dawn when overnight temperatures are lowest. Immediately upon delivery to the winery, the grapes clustered are gently de-stemmed and the berries transferred to a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank where they are cold soaked for up to four days before being inoculated with yeast to begin fermentation, which can take up to two weeks. Following pressing, the new wine is transferred to small American and Yugoslavian oak barrels for 18 months of aging."
"Mixed dark fruits blend with anise, vanilla and considerable spice. A significant peppery burst precedes a lush middle and long lingering finish."
About the Producer:
"Mill Creek wines have won many of the most prestigious awards possible including the Sonoma County Harvest Fair's coveted Sweepstakes Award, the California State Fair's Best Wine in the State award, and Orange County Fair's Four Star Gold as well as dozens of Best of Class awards and hundreds of Gold medals.
Conceived in 1965 when the family first planted grapes, the winery was not actually born until nine years later with the first production of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Two years later we completed transforming an existing farming structure into a state of the art winery. In 1982, Mill Creek built its tasting room modeled after one of the many wood mills that were popular in the area around the turn of the 20th century.
Several members of the Kreck family currently work on the Mill Creek property. Current owners, Bill and Yvonne Kreck are involved in many areas of the production of Mill Creek's world-class wines, from growing to bottling to selling. Their middle son, Jeremy Kreck, is now both winemaker and vineyard manager. Bill's brother Bob and his wife, Elizabeth, are still involved in some aspects of the farming and harvesting procedures.
On this single property, you can visit a place that completes the entire process of growing grapes through selling wine. Unlike some properties where most, or all, of the fruit is purchased, or the wine is made off-site, Mill Creek is the complete package where one can experience the creation of excellent varietal wines from start to finish."
