As I noted last summer, the 2013 Sky Zinfandel is a first class bottle and every bit as fine an example of Mount Veeder terroir as those illustrious Cabernets made just up the hill at Mayacamas! The bouquet is pure, soil-driven and complex and shows just how serious this varietal can be in the right hands, as it wafts from the glass in a classy blend of black raspberries, spit-roasted game, fine mountain soil tones, cigar smoke and a panoply of exotic spice elements in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely transparent, with a lovely core of fruit, suave, moderate tannins, tangy acids and great focus and grip on the complex and very, very promising finish. This is a serious, relatively low octane Zinfandel (13.4 percent) that is going to age long and gracefully, and though it is quite approachable today, its promise is too good to drink it without at least a bit more bottle age! I am late to the party for these lovely Sky Vineyards Zinfandel, but they are some of the most beautiful examples of this varietal still made in all of California and I cannot wait to visit the winery and really get a feel for what is going on here, as it is all very, very good!
