Old Vine Zin Zinfandel

Before decanting, it was fruity raspberries plums with a dusty initial taste. After decanting, it smooths out. A soft velvet taste of raspberries and dark fruit. Soft. — 8 hours ago

Yup, still one of my favorite blends. Just enough funk from SV vineyard. Delicious with food. — 4 days ago

Penfolds

Bin 138 Old Vine Barossa Valley Shiraz Blend 2009

Raspberry aromas and a rubbery note. Very raspberry on the palate. Oak influence is restrained, particularly for a Penfolds red (apart from St Henri) although it is 10 years old, very integrated and nearing the end of its drinking window. Once again the Grenache aromas and influence on the palate dominate in this GSM Blend. Easy to drink. — 19 days ago

@ES Faiello Totally agree. Bins 128 and 28 as well as Koonunga Hill are good as well. Seems like Penfolds Wines are more readily available in the USA these days?

I’ve always found them well represented... 707 cab might be a treat, 128 & st henri a bit rare but all in all - not too difficult to find - esp. lower end stuff - cheers!

Oak Ridge Winery

OZV Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel 2013

This was a jammy and accessible Zinfandel. It had a nice boysenberry and grape flavor with hints of spice. For the price this was excellent. — 21 days ago

Hartford Court

Old Vine Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2017

Bouquet of raspberries and floralness. Tastes of red raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry, almost a compote. Then some sour cherry and maybe a berry jolly rancher? Then maybe some woodiness. Ends w a touch of white pepper. Delicious. Nowhere near the single vineyard stuff from Hartford but for the price this is some great stuff! — 17 days ago
