Close your eyes, smell this wine, and you might think you’ve moved from Rutherford to Morgon. This wine has the kind of youthful impact of a great cru Beaujolais, then it settles into the plump richness of Napa Valley zin. Its mineral-driven tannins ground all the bright and zesty fruit, holding it tight, suggesting this has years of development ahead. A zin to hold. Best Buy
The 2018 Zin is one for the ages. Tremendous aromatic intensity, yes, but it is the cool, calm and polished flavors that excite. Fine young, but it is the aging potential of this wine that is truly special.
Blend: 82% Zinfandel, 14% Petite Sirah, 4% Carignane
