Define ‘old vine’ as 50+ years old so says the back label. Color is nice. Hint of purple in the crimson. Sour-ish streak in the smokey and musky nose. Little berry jam there too. Plenty of the jam on the tongue. Smooth and silky too. This is an ‘as expected’ wine. A small ‘fruit-bomb’ and a mid to lower shelf style CA red. It’s a bit too clean and sleek for my preference, but it’s Zinfandel for sure, and it has just enough tannins and bitterness to just keep it from the trappings of syrupy new world reds.
