"This classic-style Zin is complex, appetizing, and well-balanced, from its sage, raspberry and baked earth aromas to lightly tangy but ripe plum, dried cherry, and black-pepper flavors. Moderate tannins and good acidity give it great freshness, inviting more and more sips. Best through 2028." 10/1/2021
Deep purple color right to the rim. Aromatically, there is dark black fruits like mulberry, boysenberry, blueberry, and black-skinned plums, all very fresh, without a hint of raisin. Cedar and some new oak, fresh tobacco, and vanilla top off the nose, and there’s a seriousness to the complex blending here. Low, restricted yields in our “top of blocks 2 and 3” portion of the vineyard create a real concentration of the flavors. There’s a not-so-subtle weightiness in the mouth, rich, blackberry pie, allspice, warm green earth and bricks, sweet herbs, and crushed berries. The finish grips a little more than the Estate Ranch, and the Petite Sirah provides a powerful push to give the wine more lift, intensity, and length.
Not black, but a saturated purple color with a red rim. On the nose, there’s freshness especially, with wild huckleberry, blackberry, and sweet plum aroma. More than that, there’s cherry pie and pie crust, warm sweet herbs, and a touch of vanilla. The aromas are echoed in the flavors, and the palate has soft, rounded edges, and a medium-full density. The finish is long, flowing, and generous with mulberries, blueberries, cocoa powder, and vanilla.

"Heady clove and cedar aromas lead to good, jammy fruit flavors that are also coated with clove, cedar, and toasted oak notes. Full body and light tannins provide a grippy texture." 10/1/2021
This wine expresses itself aromatically with nuances of fresh blackberry and cranberry with ever-so-subtle hints of savory dried herbs. The tannin structure is finely polished, and its juicy backbone is the major player from front to back in this classic Zinfandel. Well-balanced acidity ensures it will age famously over the next several years. Premier Old Vine Zinfandel epitomizes the elegance and structure that can be derived from well-established vineyards. The layered complexity is complemented by its exceptional weight and balance - a signature of Old Vine Zinfandel.
