Russian River, Sonoma, California
 
WB Rating: 87

 
Alcohol by volume: 14.5%
Price at time of purchase: $19.00 (Limited availability)
 
Type: Zinfandel
Principal varietal(s): Not stated. Assumed 100% Zinfandel.

From 10 acres of Zinfandel vines planted in 1909. Attractive ruby-purple color. Fairly complex nose, with different tasters describing notes of cinnamon, plums, vanilla, cherry liqueur, and "barely ripe loganberry." Nice, matching flavors, but falls a little short of the opulence and grip of the great Zins. - WB Team 2000-06-20
