On the Vine Gamay

Cork: funky, maybe blackberry?
Wine: very fruity, strawberry, with a hint of citrus on the back of tongue, smells like berries with some damp moss. But a very light wine, almost feels bubbly. Color reminds me of the ugly maroon carpet of my parents bedroom

Uco Valley Old Vine Malbec 2017

Refined #ucovalley #malbec - Somewhat restrained dark fruit aromas backed by leather and earthy notes. Balanced fruit and acid channel into velvety tannins - this set off well with short rib ravioli. — 7 days ago

Old Vine Sonoma Valley Zinfandel 2013

Home made pizza and Bedrock OV Zin? No brainer...14.5 but no noticeable heat after 7 years. Chewy, black-fruit and nice balance. This Zin rocks for less than $25 and works amazingly well with hen-of-the-wood mushrooms and thin sliced pepperoni. — 7 days ago

Black Saint Peter

Old Vine Zinfandel 2019

Smooth, with the typical peppery bite of the variety. Deep dark red color, and quite dry. Full body and long flavor ... outstanding. From the introductory First Leaf case. 22 January 2021 — 6 hours ago

Bedrock Wine Co.

Old Vine Zinfandel 2017

My first time trying a wine from Bedrock, a Sonoma producer who have a reputation for creating exceptional wines from old-vine Zinfandel.

This entry level bottling is very good - and very young. Brambly, with blackberry, black cherry, smokey barbecued meat, tobacco, black pepper & chocolate. Very full bodied, spicy, certainly not jammy but quite serious in its fruit profile - I actually found this quite Cabernet-like - with angular tannins and dried cherry acidity.

Nice to have a Zinfandel for the first time in what must be over a year!

Elm Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel 2016


Only 175 cases made, this is a small outfit that works w/old vines primarily Zin & Petite Sirah. This was a 15.5% monster w/extraordinary concentration & stuffing. Tightly wound and reductive, this reminded me of some Clarendon Hills wines. Finally yielded a fairly impressive Zin profile, but that ALC was out of whack. Needs to sleep for 5 yrs or so — 23 days ago
