When you find a wine you love, prepare to fall & fall hard.
At Stephen & Walker, I fell palate over heels for the 2012 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Larger than life intensity of full flavor balanced by equally bold and beautiful acid, this Zin set a new bar in my book for what Zinfandel can (and should) be. Love at first sip.
I said it once. I'll say it again. Sipping, snacking & strolling in Healdsburg via Wine Country Walking Tours is a must. Harold, our guide, worked with Mary and the fabulous staff at Stephen & Walker to design a tasting menu including 1) Pinot Noir + Triple Cream Bree topped with Truffle Salt, 2) Zinfandel + Italian Sausage with Savory Spices, and 3) Petite Sirah (along with a Petite Sirah Port) + dark Chocolate Brownie. Much love... VERY much love for sure.
