Burnside Road winemaker and
owner Joe Otos sourced grapes for his 2012 Zinfandel from
a vineyard on the eastern slope of Dry Creek Valley, the epicenter
of Sonoma’s Zin zone. Otos loves Zinfandel, but focuses mostly
on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay under his Willowbrook label.
In fashioning this Zinfandel, he aims to bring a Pinot-like finesse
to this sometimes rustic grape. For Otos, that means dialing back
the wine’s ripeness (no syrupy fruit bombs) and dialing up its
vibrant aromatics. He made the wine at a custom crush facility he
owns in Sebastopol, Sonoma, and aged it in mostly neutral French
