Chateau Montelena

Calistoga Zinfandel 2015

This zin is just as good as their cabs. Well balanced and not overly jammy. It is aged in French/Irish/ American oak barrels for 16 months, 15% of which are new. I can't recall ever seeing irish oak barrels before. — 20 days ago

Turley

Hayne Vineyard Zinfandel

It’s great to have a wine that in any vintage will be somewhere between ‘great’ and ‘extraordinary.’ The Turley Hayne Zinfandel is that wine for me. Early in its run, the 2017 is headed toward the top of that range, loaded with jammy fruit, a bit of spice and a nice cut of acidity to keep it in line. Can’t wait to see how the bottles in my cellar evolve over the next 10-20 years. — 15 hours ago

Outpost

Howell Mountain Zinfandel 2015

Yea, digging this. Lush blackberry and blueberry fruit, a touch pruny but not over the top. Cigar tobacco, pepper and some heat to round it out. Delicious — 14 days ago

Napa Valley Zinfandel 2016

Great wine!

Complex on the nose: cherry, pine needle, mint, orange rind, graphite

On the tongue: cherry, strawberry, Napa dust, plum maybe, cedar.
Super juicy! Not your typical pepper explosion or overly hot alcohol you see in Zin. Can’t wait to visit them in person!
