Old Vine Napa Valley Zinfandel 2019

My first time trying this producer’s Zin. I opened this yesterday knowing that it likely needed more time but was too impatient to wait. Decanted for 2 hours and it still gave off heat from alcohol, but started to develop with time in the glass. Day 2 and this wine has improved significantly. This wine is jammy, but not overly. I think this wine will really shine with a couple more years in the bottle. Will wait to open the next one. — 6 days ago

Zinfandel clearly has some utility… with a very suggestive appearance.
Drink this cold. Very rugged expression of a summertime wine. Displays it full coat of arms when combined with hard cheeses. Lots of cherry blossom notes with hints of red licorice. Drink over the next 24 months.

Incredible stuff, purchased this from winery, always enjoyed their Zin and they have some compelling single vineyard offerings: this is from their oldest vineyard planted in 1880s: inky deep dark completely opaque, looks like current vintage, after several hours it pried loose gorgeous blue & black fruit, vanilla, beef jerky, hoisin sauce, forest, white pepper, smoke, dried herbs… just unbelievable depth & complexity. Huge on palate, muscular firm grippy tannins, so much blue & black berry fruit, liqueur-like, great earthy peppery elements alongside fruit. Smooth rich lingering finish. Forgot how much we paid, but this over delivered and has a LONG life ahead. — 20 days ago

Needed every bit of the 6 hour bottle air that I gave it. Bright burning intensity. Definitely early but outstanding! — 5 hours ago

Signature Selection Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

A bit sweeter nose than I usually go for. But crisp and dry on the palate- boysenberry, dark cherry, and just a suggestion of vanilla - not sweet. — 3 hours ago
