For the month of May we decided to feature a wine that’s perfect
for your next BBQ gathering. Our team thinks this is the perfect wine for “Grillin’ & Swillin’ “
91 POINTS VINOUS
“The 2014 Old Vine Zinfandel is deep, rich and luscious, with plenty of up-front fruit and tons of appeal. More of a field blend than a true Zinfandel, the 2014 is soft and forward, with expressive red-fleshed fruit, bright acidity and terrific overall balance. The Old Vine is 77% Zinfandel and a generous 23% mixed blacks. Best of all, the Old Vine Zinfandel is a fabulous value. This is a stellar set of wines from Morgan Twain-Peterson and Chris Cottrell. In general, the 2014s feel a bit brighter and more acid-driven than most recent vintages. Readers should expect a generally lighter set of wines with less mid-palate density and overt richness than is often the case. According to Peterson, on paper acidities are pretty much in line with previous years. Because of the early harvest the wines had a bit more malic acid than normal coming in, but post malolactic fermentation, acid levels re-adjusted back within typical ranges. In my view, 2014 is a vintage that shows the quality of each site. Because of that, some of the wines are perhaps a touch less interesting, but at the same time, the top of the range is truly thrilling.”
