Zinfandel (Old Vine) 2021

 

94 Points Wine Spectator: "Spry and briary, this Zinfandel is fun to drink, with lively black cherry, licorice and dried sage flavors, which take on richness and cracked pepper accents toward zesty tannins. Drink now through 2031. 4,000 cases made (Tim Fish).

Winemaker Notes: ""This is one of the strongest Old Vine Zinfandel bottlings we have made to date. The blend leans more heavily into fruit from Sonoma and Contra Costa counties. Fruit from the great Teldeschi Ranch comprises just over 20% of the blend, followed by Beeson, Sodini, Nervo, Dommen, Pagani, Papera, Evangelho, Pato, Katushas’ and Bedrock—aka, a pretty sweet set of vineyards going into our most entry level bottling. The finished blend is 85% Zinfandel with 7% Carignan, 4% Cinsault and bits and bobs of Grand Noir, Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet and other field-blended varieties. As usual, the average vine age is around 80 years old, making a truly an “old vine” cuvee. Our goal for this wine is always to make a Zinfandel that reflects what we love most about in California: to showcase great fruit but also spice, energy and freshness. Hailing from a drought year, this wine has an added degree of intensity that will make it great for early consumption or a little time sideways in the cellar.” Morgan Twain-Peterson
