97pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2019 Zinfandel Jackass Vineyard opens to kaleidoscopic wild berry preserves, apricots, licorice and potpourri-like spices that gain nuance and intensity with time in the glass. The palate offers surprising depth of flavor in a lifted, silken, ultra juicy frame, and it finishes with a flourish of spicy nuances. What a beauty! It's immediately approachable but has what it takes for a long life in the cellar.
The 2019 Zinfandel Jackass Vineyard is a dark, powerful wine loaded with tons of earthy, savory character. Leather, cedar, tobacco, smoke, licorice and dried herbs complement a core of inky dark fruit in this potent, powerhouse Zinfandel from Martinelli. The 2019 is a decidedly brooding and inward in bearing.
