Sunset Magazine Awards 2012 Zinfandel Gold Medal

Adding to the recognition received earlier in the year from Wine Enthusiast and the San Francisco Chronicle, our 2012 Zinfandel has been awarded a Gold Medal from Sunset Magazine’s International Wine Competition.

With this “Triple Crown,” the 2012 is now the most awarded wine we’ve produced to date.  It is an honor, and we will be working hard to continue this tradition with our upcoming releases.

2012 Mikami Vineyards Zinfandel Awarded 90 Points from Wine Enthusiast

In the August 2015 issue of the Wine Enthusiast, our 2012 Mikami Vineyards Zinfandel has been awarded 90 points.  We are excited and humbled to receive yet another prestigious review for our wine.  This, in addition to our Gold Medal from the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, continues to validate our winemaking philosophies:  Quality, Handcrafted, Attention to Detail.  Here are the tasting notes from the magazine:

“This is a full-bodied but easy-drinking wine with ample ripe fruit flavors and attractive accents from oak aging, like vanilla, nutmeg and a touch of brown sugar. It coats the mouth with rich fruitiness and lingers on the finish in a compelling manner. — J.G. (8/1/2015)”

We hope everyone who reserved an allocation has enjoyed the wine, and for those who have not yet purchased, please contact us immediately to claim the limited inventory remaining.
