Sonoma County Harvest Fair 2009

At this year's competition I had the opportunity to be on the panel evaluating Zinfandel and Bordeaux blends.  There were a number of superstar wines, all made from Sonoma County fruit.

During the Sweepstakes round at the end of the judging, I also had the chance to taste the other panels' Best of Class selections.

On Saturday we had the chance to retaste almost 2 dozen of these wines at the Harvest Fair Stars class.  You can read about some of the favorites on my blog:  TasteWine:  Ray Johnson's wine blog

Many of the wines are quite affordable and while a few immediately sold out after the news of the results spread, you can still find others at your favorite local wine shop.

You can view the complete results online at Harvest Fair Awards 2009
