Peachy Canyon

Westside Paso Robles Zinfandel 2019

One of my favorite wineries when I lived on the Central Coast. Purple red, moderate pigment extraction, excellent clarity for a red. Black olive and raspberry aromas, blackberry and olive flavors with a hint of eucalyptus. Nice undercurrent of lightly chewy tannins. Balanced and tasty “old school” Zin. Boysenberry flavor notes emerge after 45 minutes, tannins remain inoffensive but not fully resolved - polymerized or oxidized. Would this wine improve with decanting? 24 hours later, mouthfeel is rounded, black plum flavors have pushed to the forefront. Decant 3-6 hours and see for yourself. Nice Zin, great value! — a month ago

Green & Red Vineyards

Chiles Canyon Vineyards Zinfandel 2016

A solid, large-framed Zin. Dark, brambly blackberries, together with the telltale sign that they wanted a ripe style: a note of maple syrup. Some crushed sandstony gravel. Full-flavored, ripe dark fruit coats the palate, but it’s fortunately dry (no residual sugar like a lot of Zins these days). Acids on the low side. Tannins soft. At it peak. — 4 months ago
