From an old-vine vineyard just off Old Redwood Highway south of Healdsburg. Fairly closed when tasted 18 months ago, but it has opened up nicely since then. The wine is highlighted by its fresh and vibrant fruit flavors, leaning towards blackberry and blueberry, with some spicy and floral notes. Ripe, balanced mouth feel with some acidic zing. A very nice Ponzo and a reminder to give these Zins 4 years or so from the vintage to fully appreciate them. - HK 2019-01-24
