Zinfandel Blend

Orin Swift Cellars

8 Years in the Desert Zinfandel Blend 2016

This is a big and bold Zinfandel based red Blend from California.

Showing black fruits with tobacco, chocolates, coffee, cola, vanilla, cedar, licorice and mocha.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Jammy and creamy. Smooth and easy drinking.

Enjoyable by itself, and would pair nicely with a burger.

Would be interesting to try it in a few years, as it might calm down a bit. Might be too sweet for some.

A blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Syrah.

15.7% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Best zin we’ve had in a long time. Impressive. Aged so well. Very old vineyard that we visited with the winemaker at Calera. — 16 hours ago

Pesenti Vineyard Zinfandel 2017

Along with a vintage bottle of Roederer’s L’Ermitage, I always open a Zinfandel on the 4th of July. Perfect pairings for grilling out and a relaxed day!

I’ve had the Pesenti a few times now (this is my first with the 2017), and it’s always a different beast to me than other Turley zins. In fact, I’m consistently shocked this is a Paso zin as I’d expect this to taste 2-3times as intense. I decanted for two hours, and then consumed over the next 2-3. Ruby in the glass, immediately on the nose this is spicy. Potpourri, black peppered black cherries, underripe raspberries and blackberries, and cedar on the nose. The body is nowhere near as rich as you’d expect, and the acidity is really nice and nervy. It lends to the profile having a spicy and tart mid palate. Rhubarb and peppercorn crusted pomegranate dominate here. It wears its mid 15ABV well. Would be curious to see how this changes with age…

Wilde Farm

Heritage Bedrock Vineyard Zinfandel Blend 2016

Deep berry nose — all sorts of berries. Sweet spice and a bit of warm gravel. In the mouth it’s full flavored, but has nice balance (good acids!) and is just wicked fun to drink with dinner in the backyard. So much fruit, but not in a jammy way. — 19 days ago

Love Rosé California Valdiguié Blend

Made significant headway on my to do list today.

A little rose to nightcap the day.

Love this go-to as always. The color in the glass is divine peach blood pink.

Straight juice, bruh… or should I say Broc

Ripe raspberries and cherries in the nose, beautiful vibrant acid across the full palate. Red apple skins, pomegranate and vanilla on the palate. Yummy! Yay, it’s not a CA zin fruit bomb! — 9 days ago

Not sure anyone does zin-driven blends better than Matt Trevisan at Linne Calodo. Not something worth laying down for a ling time: enjoy the intensity of the fruit while it’s young! — 2 days ago

Navarro Vineyards

Mendocino Zinfandel 2018

Purple, inky, dense. Eucalyptus and blackberry in nose. Blackberry and cherry in mouth, slightly tart in initial pour. Mild lactic aftertaste. Not a classic Zin style but a fine Cali Zin regardless. — 10 days ago

Evangelho Vineyard Heritage Zinfandel Blend 2016

Soft, warm, spicy, inviting—dried cherries, cocoa, floral tones, tomato leaf, cracked pepper; soft tannins and lightly viscous. No need to wait. A great pairing for a very elegant barbecue — 10 days ago
