What Sonoma Zinfandel is all about: capturing a distinctive vineyard in a glass. Aromas of black raspberry, fresh-cracked pepper and orange zest combine with complex, well-modulated flavors of licorice, blackberry and dried sage. Drink now through 2028. (TF)
The 2013 Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard, from the home vineyard planted in 1927 by another Italian immigrant, is a 701-case cuvée tipping the scales at 15.3% alcohol. The wine is 87% Zinfandel and 13% mixed black and white varietals. (Mike Officer has 30 different varietals planted in this vineyard.) Only about 20% new French oak is used, and the wine bottled unfined and unfiltered. Loads of black raspberry, kirsch liqueur, lavender, licorice and subtle earthy notes are all present in this multidimensional, full-bodied, gloriously decadent and tasty Zinfandel. Drink it over the next decade. (RP)
From a vineyard planted in 1927 and tended to by the producer, this is a bright, lushly crisp wine from a field blend--soft, luxurious and smooth on the palate. The highlights are many, from a seductive leap of raspberry coulis to perfumed lavender and surprisingly nuanced tannins despite the full-bodied ripeness, accentuated by the vintage, and the structured power behind the scenes. Drink now through 2023. (VB)
Inky purple. Powerful dark fruit liqueur and potpourri scents are lifted by an exotic Asian spice nuance and a suggestion of smoky minerals. Sweet, seamless and concentrated, with intense dark fruit liqueur flavors offering a suave blend of richness and vivacity. A spine of juicy acidity sharpens the lush fruit on the finish, which lingers with superb tenacity and subtle, sneaky tannins that quickly fade away.
