The debut release from a new terroir, the 2000 Zinfandel Mead Ranch Atlas Peak exhibits an intriguing higher altitude note of jammy raspberries intermixed with floral scents. As the wine sits in the glass, interesting Amarone-like characteristics jump out. This full-bodied, earthy, chewy, and rich wine is a superb effort from an organically farmed vineyard planted in red volcanic soil. The alcohol is a whopping 15.7%, and there are 500 cases of this blockbuster Zinfandel.
Medium ruby. Smoky currant, tobacco and milk chocolate on the nose. Big, lush and sweet, with strong berry notes complicated by a light peppery herbaceousness. Shows the somewhat leafy quality I found in the 2000 from this site. A more polite, rather claret-styled zinfandel.
