    Yoakim Bridge 2016 Estate Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

    This racy, garnet hued wine with notes of pomegranate and rose has a red cherry base that is so typical of our dry farmed vineyard. The French and American oak are restrained. Our Zinfandel shows most generously when poured, (not necessarily decanted), an hour or two before drinking. You can enjoy it with many meat and cheese dishes that are not overly seasoned. It pairs especially well with turkey, duck, ham and mild sausages. Should you find yourselves with a few bottles next summer you scored the perfect accompaniment to an enjoyable afternoon on the porch or in the garden. Enjoy now or over the next two years.

    Yoakim Bridge 2015 Estate Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

    We are especially delighted to be releasing this elegant dry-farmed, old vine Zinfandel. It is well balanced with highlights of black cherry fruit and a hint of sweet oak. Tannins are soft and the finish is lengthy. 35% of the same Zinfandel was added to the pinot blend (RED WINE) which greatly enhanced its complexity and nuance. It is fortunate that we are still able to release this many bottles to you. Drink with abandon now, and over the next two years. ENJOY!

    Yoakim Bridge Estate 2013 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

    Grown entirely on our five acre estate dry farmed vineyard, this wine is 100% Zinfandel. It is an exquisite representation of our world renowned appellation. It is forward on the pallet with spicy notes of cinnamon, anise and raspberry. Acidity, tannin and fruit are in balance yet it is complex and delicate. It is a powerful wine. Celebrate now or lay down for a year or two. We look forward to enjoying it with spring lamb, summer barbeques and always, sunset on the porch.

    Yoakim Bridge RED WINE NV Dry Creek Valley RESERVE

    Why “Red” wine? Because Virginia likes to tell everyone that David says a wine’s primary responsibility is to be RED! This particular red wine is a super tasting blend of 65% 2014 Pinot Noir, Dry Creek Valley, and 35% Estate grown Yoakim Bridge 2015 Zinfandel. Of course I could have used 10% less Zinfandel and legally labeled it Pinot Noir-but it wouldn’t have been the same fine wine, and I am a winemaker after all. This is the best blend I tasted after many weeks of trails. It has great finesse, a silky slightly perfumed finish with just enough sweet French oak on the pallet. Best of all, drink it as you would a food loving Zinfandel or Pinot Noir. Drink now or within the next two years.

    2014 Yoakim Bridge Merlot Dry Creek Valley

    In 1999 we made our very first Merlot and discovered that a few small vineyards in Dry Creek Valley were capable of producing fruit truly noble in character. This vintage of wine grapes, grown at considerable elevation in the historic Sweetwater Springs district represents the French varietal beautifully. Expect a bouquet of red berry fruit, deep garnet in color, yet noticeably dry and balanced. It is medium in weight and viscosity with a long and enjoyable finish.

    Yoakim Bridge 2016 Dry Creek Valley Petite Syrah

    David’s first impression of this wine is always one of intensity and its incredibly deep, dark purple color. It is grown at an elevation of 800 feet, on Bradford Mountain which is located just a few minutes from our vineyard on the valley floor. Matt Vogensen, a fourth generation grower, applies just enough drip irrigation to keep these beautiful clusters alive, but still thirsty during the short heat spikes of late summer. We serve this wine with Mediterranean spiced lamb skewers. It also goes well with game and fragrant cheese.

    Yoakim Bridge 2014 Dry Creek Valley Petite Syrah

    This dark hued Petite is grown on the western bench of Dry Creek Valley, due west of us at a considerable elevation. It has a dark, fruity nose and expresses and slight mineral on the palate. It is straightforward, dry and lighter bodied with an alcohol of 13.5 % . A lively acidity makes this a versatile food companion.

    Yoakim Bridge Zinfandel Sauce

    This is Virginia’s original recipe featuring a blend of our estate Zinfandel wine, raspberries and other secret ingredients. It is an excellent complement to any grilled fare, especially ribs, chicken, salmon and game. Also try it on meatballs for a simple and delicious appetizer (that many of you may have sampled on your last visit!) It contains a trace of chocolate for it’s lingering finish. Sold only through the winery, it makes a lovely gift for friends, family and business associates.

    2018 Yoakim Bridge Dry-Farmed Estate Olive Oil

    This delicious 100% extra Virgin Olive Oil exhibits a beautiful green hue and a fruity finish with a delightful, classic EVO “catch” at the end. We use it as a dipping oil with crusty bread, as a base for salad dressings with shallots, garlic, anchovies and lemon juice. Elegant finishing touch drizzled over bowls of steaming hot soups or pasta dishes. It is bottled in 500 ml. clear flint bottles with a built-in pourer, which we hand fill ourselves from stainless canisters.
