(16.1% alcohol; from a crop level around 1.5 tons per acre, according to Jordan): Medium ruby. Aromas of kirsch , blackberry and gunflint. A juicy, extremely primary infant, with urgent, very intense crushed berry flavors dominating. Offers compelling fruit sweetness, and the superb whiplash of a finish, featuring serious but fully ripe tannins, suggests that this will reward cellaring.

A seemingly weightless, gracious wine, the 2010 Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard impresses for its superb balance and pure class. Layers of sweet, floral infused nuances add complexity to the expressive red-toned fruit. Saline notes appear later, giving the finish an attractive tension. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025.

That rare Zin that shows both richness and a sleek sense of el- egance. Briary and floral black raspberry aromas lead to delicately complex flavors of smoky cherry, wild anise and white peppercorn.

I had tasted this at the Turley winery, and thought it was exceptional. Was with a group. We then opened up this varietal on two occasions and it disappointed twice. Not that it was bad, but it was just not as exceptional as I had remembered, and not in the calibur of other Zin's at this prince point. (Try Le Cuvier). Earthy nose, with a bitter finish, and strong tanins that his on the back of the throught and jaw. Not horrible but not as enjoyable as other Zins.
