GAMBA ZINFANDEL "OLD VINE ESTATE", RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2015
NVWE Notes: Gamba’s “Old Vine Estate” is always an Operatic bottling, but the 2015 is a veritable Tosca. The nose is a hailstorm of classically zesty RRV fruit, as crushed fresh blueberry, pomegranate syrup, raspberry coulis and creme de Cassis scents soar above black fig, licorice root, black tea, clove, cola, date sugar, Schezuan and black peppercorn counterpoints. In the mouth, spectacular zest brings focus and a cutting balance to the palate-coating surge of fresh red raspberry, pomegranate, Cassis, Mr. Lincoln rose, orange peel, licorice root, Oolong tea, cola and dark mineral flavors that follow, and those flavors never flag, so this age-worthy classic is absolutely gulpable right now.
Robert Parker - Wine Advocate
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Zinfandel Old Vine Gamba Estate Vineyard gives baked berries, pronounced plum preserves, floral and spice box notes leading into an impressive full-on, full-bodied palate laden with rich, softly textured fruit, finishing with nice balance.
