I've been really excited about the new wave of Zinfandel producers that are finally getting their time in the spotlight these days. Focused on lighter, acid driven styles and concentrating their efforts on historic old vines, winemakers like Morgan Twain-Peterson of Bedrock and Mike Officer of Carlisle are shedding new light on one of California's oldest wines. This Valdez Zin fits perfectly into this new wave of producers. The St. Peter's Church Vineyard in Alexander Valley was planted in the 1880's and the average vine age on this wine is 90+. Light and spicy, lifted and yet structured, this is a great wine for anyone who looking for a monumental California Zinfandel that will definitely appreciate with age. .
