This was a tough variety in 2017 due to it ripening during the time of the heatwave, yet this team made a terrific 2017 Zinfandel. Brought up in one-third each of new, once-, and twice-used barrels, it has classic Zinfandel brambly herbs, blood orange, candied citrus, and bright berry fruits. Medium-bodied, juicy, and elegant, it has a distinct saltiness that’s going to make it shine on the dinner table. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years or more.
Already bottled, the 2017 Zinfandel (100% Zinfandel) was aged for 16 months in French oak, 34% new. Medium garnet-purple colored, it gives up flamboyant cherry pie, raspberry preserves and blueberry compote notes with touches of Chinese five spice, Sichuan pepper, dusty soil, dried flowers and underbrush. Full-bodied, relatively taut and chewy, it sports bold freshness on the palate, laden with spicy red and blue fruit preserves, finishing long and perfumed. (LPB)
Very spicy and intense with raisin and berry character. Full and flavorful. A big wine. A little old-style.
The 2017 Zinfandel is soft, fruity and easy to enjoy, with delicate floral notes and Asian spice. This is pretty but also a bit lighter than before. The 2017 has good aromatics and plenty of varietal character. (AG)
