J. RICKARDS ZINFANDEL "OLD VINES", BRIGNOLE VINEYARD, ALEXANDER VALLEY 2016
NVWE Notes: A superb example of the greatness of the 2016 Zinfandel harvest, this sleek beauty offers densely coiled scents of black raspberry, black cherry, Italian Maraschino cherry, Black plum, black peppercorn, black tea, dark tobacco, toffee and licorice root. It is youthfully firm, yet just as complex on the palate, where zest and vibrant fruit create a perfectly dinner-worthy balance that tames the wine’s richness. The flavors are a racy, ultra-long melange of red currant, red plum, sour red cherry, “red vines”, red rose, pink and black peppercorn, star anise, sandalwood and mace. Terrific now with fatty pork dishes and tomato sauced pasta, It will improve for three to five years. A blend of 80% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah, 5% Carignane, 4% Mataro & 1% other grapes. Planted 1908. 800 cases produced.
