2013 Clos du Bois Zinfandel Sonoma Reserve Old Vine
Alexander Valley, Sonoma, California
 
WB Rating: 86

 
Alcohol by volume: 15.5%
Price at time of purchase: $35.00 (winery)
 
Type: Zinfandel
Principal varietal(s): Zinfandel

Nicely balanced Zinfandel from 75+ year old vineyards in Alexander Valley. Despite the alcohol level, no real feeling of heat, and not a heavyweight in the density department either. Attractive, slightly herbal berry and plum fruit with a touch of mint/cedar in the background. Not overly assertive, and therefore probably a better food wine than some of the more powerful Sonoma Zins. But at $35 it's in some awfully competitive territory and you can do better for the price. - HK 2016-10-26
