Thoroughly enjoyable 29 year old Zinfandel with grilled lamb. — a month ago
July 21, 2019. Dinner w/ Jack D and KK. Purchased at TTW tasting Oct 2017. Dolcetto from the lovely town of Nieve. This was our 3rd bottle and my tasting notes did not survive the evening, but loved this wine! — a month ago
Easy to drink, full body, no weird aftertaste. Drove by this winery on our way to Healdsburg from downtown Sonoma. — 22 days ago
Young, but all the components are there now (and will heighten). It’s odd to say this “only” has 14%ABV, but it’s so refreshing to have a zin that isn’t pushing 15-17%. Smoked bacon fat, black cherries, lingonberries, ripe blackberries, and peppercorn aromatics. Wonderful acidity! Love zin with a good acidic backbone. Structure is very solid. Tart mixed berry pie, and added herbal spice at the finish. Neither light nor dense...balanced. Not jammy and definitely not flabby.
Excellent Sonoma zin. This is now the second zin I’ve had from this producer and both have been very good. Thank you for this, @Jack Thompson ! — 11 days ago
