Suisun Valley Petite Sirah 2015

Very dark. Smells resinous and berry-lucious. Forests and good humus come to mind. Flavors are nice. It’s dry and very tannic, but it’s got nice anise, licorice stuff to go with the plum and dark berries. Very complex and filled with flavor. This is classic, classy Petite. — 17 days ago

Out of a split - is there any producer who is more consistent w/Zin? Ridge is up there, but for sheer offerings, I’ll take Seghesio. This is textbook - a clinic in Sonoma Zin... 10 yrs & peaking! — 22 days ago

Bedrock Wine Co.

Old Vine Zinfandel 2017

Initially, upon opening, I thought this was too extracted and scorchy, but after just a bit of air that sensation receded and the wine softened and developed. Nose is classic Zin black raspberry fruit, and nice briary, soft herbal note, and some moist gravel, river stones notes in the background. Ripe, but not too ripe, and extracted, but not too extracted, in the mouth. Has a dry, full-bodied feel, with a bit a peppery heat and some scratchy tannin in the finish. Seems like fewer and fewer Zin producers are interested in anything other than a loud wine, but at least this isn’t too loud. — 24 days ago
