Spragia Family Vineyards’ 2007 “La Promessa” Zinfandel comes from the Spragia family’s vineyard that surrounds the winery in Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley. Its rocky southwest facing slope is arguably the warmest part of the valley, which results in steady ripening of the fruit and an elegant yet bold flavor profile in the finished wine. The vineyard (and wine) name, “the Promise” in Italian, was chosen for the promise owner Ed Spragia made to his father to continue his family’s winemaking traditions. The 2007 “La Promessa” Zinfandel is a very special wine to the Spragia family, made in the way Ed’s father taught him, with minimal winemaking intervention and allowing the wine to take care of itself.
Elegant and soft with attractive aromas of sun-ripened raspberries, the 2007 Zinfandel exudes flavors of ripe cherries and hints of tart red fruit that are accentuated by great acidity and a medium body.
Wine Spectator rates this fabulous wine 93 Points: “Supple and jammy, yet balanced with lively acidity, this is loaded with licorice and wild berry aromas and complex blackberry jam and smoky black pepper flavors. Drink now through 2015.” The Spragia 2007 La Promessa was also awarded a Gold Medal at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair. Enjoy!
