I haven’t seen any discussion of Sarah Knowles’ offer of Once and Future wines from Joel Peterson. He’s one of my wine heroes so I snapped up a pair of each. Tasting one of his single-estate Ravenswood wines on in Sonoma is still one of my favourite wine memories so I was really excited!
So far i’ve only tried the Forcini Zinfandel - it’s just gorgeous. All the big fruit and power you’d expect from a Californian Zin, but with real finesse and depth. The oak is managed beautifully and the nose really comes alive once it’s had a chance to breath. The perfect bottle for a nice steak!
Has anyone tried any of the others yet?
