Sonoma County Zinfandel

Sonoma County Old Vine Zinfandel 2015

Fantastic. Rich and velvety with cracked black pepper, blackberry and tobacco flavors. Smooth and supple tannins. Worth the premium over the Sonoma County? No. But I stole this and got a couple bottles for the same price so it was an easy decision. — 3 days ago

Excellent old Zin! Balanced and still a bit of ripe fruits and lots of tertiary notes of forest floor and earth. Think just a bit lower than Optima. — 2 days ago

Unfiltered Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2001

Came out of the bottle hot, hot, hot. I think it’s prime time to drink this if you’ve got it.

I recently heard that Don is selling off the vineyard - such a bummer! Wishing him and his family the best.

Sonoma Terrace Vineyards

Sonoma County Zinfandel 2015

Fairly simple label and bottle. ‘Nothing to see here, just a plain ole Sonoma Zin’ is the vibe. Color is good: Ruby, garnet. Smells of Old Spice and Indian curry in a good way. Also soil and bakers chocolate. Hint of berries, but it’s not pronounced. Flavors are lovely and very restrained for CA Zin. Wet rocks meet chocolate mints. Forest berries (salmon, thimble and red huckle) and tart currant syrups. Bit of soft peppery bite (say roasted red jimmy nordelo). Juicy. Chewy. And quite tasty! The horehound, cherry, fancy red licorice mix lingers long and delightfully. — 9 days ago

"Giuseppe & Luisa" Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2016

One of favorite zins. Decanted for a hour. Plum and floral aromas. Black and blue fruit with lilac, and eucalyptus. This is big at 16.4% abv so be prepared and requires a solid decant. — 16 days ago
