From another Sonoma site, the 2014 Zinfandel Fredericks Vineyard (15.8% alcohol) is juicy, lush and full of fruit, with a dark ruby/purple color. It lacks the complexity of the Bedrock, but is still beautifully rich, offering loads of blackberry and black cherry fruit, full body and no hard edges, although it has enough acidity and tannin to give it structure and focus. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. This hillside vineyard was planted in 1937. All told there are seven Zinfandels from Napa Valley, ranging from Atlas Peak in the south, to Howell Mountain in mid-valley, to the estate vineyard just north of St. Helena. As one might expect, all of these are remarkable Zinfandels. (RP)
Beams of tannin and an overall dark flavor profile give the 2014 Zinfandel Fredericks Vineyard much of its distinctive, virile personality. One of the more structured wines in the range, the Fredrick needs time in bottle to soften. Even so, the Fredericks has developed beautifully over the last year. Intense red stone fruit, white pepper, mint and chalk notes, along with the signature mineral notes from these volcanic soils, give the wine much of its drive and overall focus. (AG)
