Tasting Notes

92-95 points Robert Parker: "The 1997 Zinfandel Grist Vineyard (16.3% alcohol) is a perfumed, aromatic wine with a glorious display of cherry fruit. Think of a terrific red Burgundy with an element of sur-maturite and an unprecedented alcohol level, and readers may get a sense of what this blockbuster tastes like. The wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, fabulous purity, copious amounts of glycerin, and layers of kirsch/cherry fruit. This head-turning, knock-out Zinfandel will be especially admired by both lovers of Burgundy and those who admire the famed Chateauneuf du Pape, Rayas. It should drink well for 7-8 years." (06/99) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Urgent aromas of crushed red and black berries, and black pepper. Supersweet but not cooked; thick and spicy. Impressively long and ripe on the back end, but retains good freshness. The best Grist vintage to date, and approachable already." (May/June '99) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Smooth, ripe and jammy, with layers of plum, cherry, wild berry and blackberry. Finishes with firm, drying tannins." (06/99)
