Napa Zinfandel

Old Vine Napa Valley Zinfandel 2019

My first time trying this producer’s Zin. I opened this yesterday knowing that it likely needed more time but was too impatient to wait. Decanted for 2 hours and it still gave off heat from alcohol, but started to develop with time in the glass. Day 2 and this wine has improved significantly. This wine is jammy, but not overly. I think this wine will really shine with a couple more years in the bottle. Will wait to open the next one. — 8 days ago

Wow! Very cool and fresh. The zin notes- grape, dried strawberry and tamarind, are presented in a lovely, cool frame. — 15 days ago

Zinfandel clearly has some utility… with a very suggestive appearance.
Drink this cold. Very rugged expression of a summertime wine. Displays it full coat of arms when combined with hard cheeses. Lots of cherry blossom notes with hints of red licorice. Drink over the next 24 months.

Dessert wine. Always, no never, no always a good idea. Sometimes. Good one. — 8 days ago

Mezcolanza Zinfandel Blend 2016

So good, this is time-travel Zinfandel, just like the better producers made it in the 70s. (I don’t know how the trend got to the point where 15%+ jam monsters are the norm, but it did.) This has a nice youthful saturated color. Nose is very pure, spicy blackberry, with nose-tingly acids showing, spice, and loads of crushed stone minerality. At once lively and rich in the mouth, it’s got great, focused brambly Zin fruit and crisp—yes, crisp—acids. Bone dry. A bit of tannic structure and a nice rocky, gravelly note. So damn good. Go Bruins! — 20 days ago

Needed every bit of the 6 hour bottle air that I gave it. Bright burning intensity. Definitely early but outstanding! — 2 days ago

Napa Valley Zinfandel Rosé 2021

A surprising white zin that will indeed change your mind about white zin. Creamy strawberry, but not too much fruit. Edgy acidity in all the best ways. Wish i had ordered more! — 16 days ago

Nice zinfandel with a great story. Low tannin med-high acid. Probably better to drink in a few years. — 22 days ago
