Old Vines Saint Georges Zinfandel 2019

Such a unique take on Zinfandel. Lower alcohol and much more red-fruited than is typical, the nose has great purity of cherry and raspberry compote, crushed rock, and a dusting of baking spice. In the mouth it’s got great flavor concentration in an aerodynamically lean package. Intense red fruit and lots of crushed rock. Great acids. A perfect summer Zin. This winery never disappoints, in my experience. — 5 months ago

(Santa Clara County) Grenache 2018

The bottle was opened about three hours prior to dinner, splash decanted and then returned to the bottle. Pours a bright ruby color. On the nose, red cherry and strawberry fruits; comes across a bit alpine? Minerals and other light herbs somewhat nod the mountains...which I guess makes some sense considering the location of Besson Vineyard (the source of the fruit, just outside of the Santa Cruz AVA). This is a Grenache endowed with undeniable structure. The acid is obvious immediately however, it takes a few hours for the tannin monster to show up. This would benefit from a handful of years on the cellar. The Besson Vineyard was planted in 1910. The folks at Birichino Winery were willing to share 1.5 tons of their fruit. 3.5 barrels produced. — 3 years ago
