K&L Notes

Planted in rugged, red, rocky, volcanic soils some 2,100ft up Mount Veeder, Sky Vineyards is a breathtaking place. After working at Mayacamas and Beaulieu Vineyards, Sky Vineyards founder, Lore Olds, purchased this remote piece of land and has been hand-crafting unique and complex wines every since. The vines are tended with organic and biodynamic principles. The fruit is crushed in a tiny, 100 year old wooden basket press and raised in entirely old, neutral French oak. The resulting wines are singular in character with a stunning mix of wild spicy fruit, wonderful earthy tones and structures that will see them cellar for many decades to come.

    One of the more complex Zinfandel based wines I've ever tasted...no scratch that....one of the more complex wines I've ever tasted, period. If you're looking for a soft, jammy, fruit bomb - this wine is not for you. This is old school, structured, grippy, mountain grown Zinfandel that will age with the best Cabernet based wines in your cellar. To be honest I think this wine really tastes more of Mount Veeder than of Zinfandel per se. The wine has some beautiful dusty red fruits, brambly, briary notes, lots of cedar, earth, cigar box, aromatic spices of cumin and clove plus bass tones of smoked meat and crumbly earth. It is at once quite rustic, but also refined and lifted. Even at 7 years of age this wine still has formidable tannin structure and a taught acid line that both indicate this wine has a few decades of ageing potential...maybe more.
