Broc Cellars

Vine Starr Sonoma County Zinfandel 2013


The absolutely worst #zinfandel I've ever had and hope I ever will have. If I had the time I would write a thesis on the evils of #wholecluster ferments. I've never tried a #Crljenak Kaštelanski from #croatia but blind tasting this wine I localized it in #georgia or #romania or somewhere like that and felt like it was a weak or feeble #pinot Med- color, #spicy nose with white pepper (cluster) and #geranium (defect) on the palate it was not just acidic, but off balance and sour! A #zin sour? Yes :( green notes through and through. Med- finish. You can drink it and as a wine I could have scored it higher, but when I uncovered the bottle and found it was supposed to be a #zinfandel I am giving it this score. I'm all for imitating #burgundy, but with Pinot and when it's done right. I think a #beaujolais is better than this. #california have we gone perhaps too far in the wrong direction? — 5 years ago
