Sineann

Old Vine Zinfandel 2016

Sineann old vine Zinfandel, 2016. This is Columbia Valley Oregon. Zinfandel is a pretty difficult wine to make but these guys have it down!!!!!!! This is perhaps the best Zinn I’ve tasted in a long time. You can actually taste the pepper in the spice right from the get go. You can also taste the flavor of the Zinfandel grape as well right on the front of the pallet. It’s almost sweet but it’s nowhere near sugar sweet. There’s blueberry boysenberry blackberry even some raspberry in there. Loads of black pepper white pepper cigarbox graphite. The finish gives my palate a wonderful tingle. And I will definitely buy a lot more of this while it’s this good!!!! You should too! — 3 days ago

Turley

Steacy Ranch Zinfandel 2017

Medium purple with light ruby red accents. Spice is all over this baby from the jump. Black and white pepper, along with baking spices. Red fruits mingle with blackberry cobbler and cinnamon. Fresh cut grass and little traces of beautiful violets on the back end.

Incredibly dense and just plain lovely. Since this is a Turley we already know that this will not be an over the top syrupy fruit bomb mess. Where other Zins zig and zag, they continuously stay the course. Decadent and elegant, this has a lush mouthfeel and firm tannins. Highly concentrated but never in a bad way.

Cherries bat lead off on the robust palate with vanilla and more blackberries. Smoke, spice, and oak are present with moist soil. Wonderful new leather plays a back up role. Roasted coffee on the long finish. This is not a fruit forward Zinfandel unlike so many others. This is just delicious.

Can't beat when on sale for $17. Gives you everything you want in a zin. Well balanced and a great mid-level zin that is not overly jammy. — 12 days ago

👃 Nose is clean and offers medium intensity red fruit notes that are ripe and jammy, such as cherry, strawberry-rhubarb, plum, along with spicy notes, such as dark baking spices, vanilla, and some green, herbaceous elements. Aromas are developing.

👄 palate is dry, medium acidity, medium+ tannins, high alcohol, medium+ body, with medium red fruit and baking spice notes, which are consistent with the nose. Medium+ finish with lingering flavors and warmth.

Love this producer - Grgich Hills Estate, Napa Valley, Zinfandel. Especially love the Chardonnays, but this was a balanced Zinfandel from Napa. Co-founder of this estate (Miljenko “Mike” Grgich) also crafted the ‘73 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that won the 1976 Judgement of Paris. Vintage 2015. ABV 14.9%. Made with organic grapes 🍇 Enjoying it as a complement to brats and Brussels sprouts on the grill.

The lineup of 2018s is really goods. The old vine amador county buck Cobb is great for the price. Confectionary sugar, red currants and cinnamon on the nose. Smooth and soft. Not showing too much alcohol. Just really really good zin — 14 days ago

I love Sonoma Zinfandel and this Russian River one is a favorite. A beautiful and unusual strawberry flavor, pretty hot and cools off after an hour. Perfect when you’re in the right mood. — 14 days ago
