The Long, Hot Summer – No doubt, one of Dezel’s favorite Paul Newman classic movies, and a title that appropriately describes the summer of 2007 here in Virginia, friends. For those local to the area, you know that we are well into October and the seasonal warmth of summer still lingers on. Despite several thunderstorms this summer, we have experienced fairly dry conditions that are similar to our Zinfandel loving pals in California. Additionally, Mother Nature has gifted Virginia growers, for the most part, with long hot days and cool nights, which is ideal for wine grapes. Remember, a premium wine begins its life-cycle in the vineyard.
With the 2007 vintage, I look forward to a number of slightly fuller bodied and flavorful wines with good balance and solid structure. Yummy! Almost west coast like, but not as assertive, which makes these wines great for pairing with a number of foods. Get your cellars and corkscrews ready friends; I believe the 2007 vintage will please even the most discriminating of palates. I eagerly await the offerings!
