Description | Details | Rating

This Mendocino-born zin is a blend of 84% zinfandel, 14% petite sirah, and 2% carignan, making it one of the more heavily-blended zinfandels we’ve seen in quite a while. While the wine can’t escape the iconic dark purple color, it does succeed at loosening up some of the uber-sweet structure that Zin so typically exudes, cutting the still-rather-jammy core with some notes of tobacco, dark chocolate, and baking spice. The finish feels a bit tight, but it also offers a bit of acidity to brighten up the proceedings.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
" Composed of 84% Zinfandel with smaller parts of Petite Sirah and Carignan, the 2016 Zinfandel Mendocino offers up crushed blueberries and warm plums with hints of mulberries, dried herbs, damp soil and fruitcake. Full-bodied, rich, chewy and expressive, it has lovely dried berry, spice box and earth expressions with a nice, long finish. "
