Mayacamas Vineyards

Napa Valley Late Harvest Zinfandel 1976

An amazing wine list at Gotham Bar and Grill. And then this gem found with the sommelier’s help. Wow! Still has fruit on the first taste. Raisin and wet forest floor. 43 year old Napa wines, that are structured properly from the beginning continue to keep California on the world stage. Amazing finale to a great wine wine evening. The nose does not do the taste justice. — 10 days ago

Turley

Fredericks Vineyard Zinfandel 2016

Much better than the CAB from a few months ago. Turley - Fredericks Vineyards - 2016 Zinfandel. A spicy delightful zin! Still not the best Zin I have ever had. It has a slightly sour finish but good spice and oak in the front. I want to try the petite Syrah! — 11 days ago

East Bench Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2013

A delicious and earthy Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley. Showing black fruits, wood, licorice, spices, dark chocolate, black pepper, peppercorn, spices, green vegetables and wet leaves.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry and fruity with lots of earth notes on the nose.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly, as it wasn't good right out of the bottle, so give it time.

Good by itself or with food. I enjoyed it all by itself. This 6 year old is very tasty now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 20 years.

100% organic Zinfandel grapes. Aged for 12 months in Oak barrels. Bottled January 2015.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Zinfandel 2000

It’s rare to experience a wine that’s at its perfect point. This was it. At 20 years it was just right Full of fruit with soft tannins. Dark color and long finish. Hard to be better. Mother’s Day treat. — 11 days ago

Turley

Juvenile California Zinfandel 2017

First sip is a big old jam bomb. After about 15 minutes, it starts to mellow out and you can pick up some more subtle flavors. I always enjoy Turley. — 16 days ago

Seghesio Family Vineyards

Sonoma County Zinfandel 2016

Deep garnet color. Aromas of dark cherry, stone fruit and gingerbread. Flavors of cherry, nice fruit finish. I will say the alcohol aromas need to fade off, it’s 14.8% — 3 days ago

Stonum

VI Estate Lodi Zinfandel 2015

This wine is medium-dark in color, with light getting through the glass. The nose brings the predictable - white pepper, cherries - and the unexpected - bell pepper, anise. On the palate, red currant and cherries meet over oak spice and black pepper. The tannic structure is firm enough, but not so toothy that it gets in the way. The medium finish is laden with fruit. — 20 days ago
