Howell Mountain Old Vine Zinfandel 2015

Truncated party notes. Like a Second Growth Bordeaux made from Zinfandel. Nose showing more secondary and tertiary notes than fruit. Full and elegant. Great with grilled porterhouses. — 4 days ago

Mattei Road Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel 2015

This 6 year old is drinking very nicely now. Showing blueberries, black cherries, plums, sweet strawberries, earth, vegetables, tobacco leaf, dark coffee, pencil lead, bitter herbs, Indian spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body and smooth. Dry on the palate with medium acidity. Nicely balanced with nice complexity.

This Single Vineyard has a tangy finish with fine grained tannins, but not particularly long.

Very enjoyable, easy drinking and fruit forward. A little hot at the back of the throat, though.

Showing a gorgeous nose at this point, full of wildflowers and blue and black fruits.

Good right out of the bottle, good by itself, and better with food.

As it opens up, more complexity comes in, especially on the nose.

15.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

A small production of only 72 cases.
