SAINI VINEYARDS ZINFANDEL "PEAR BLOCK", DRY CREEK VALLEY 2013
Robert Parker - Wine Advocate
The 2013 Zinfandel Old Vine Pear Block, also from a parcel planted in 1930, possesses rich blackberry, kirsch liqueur and pepper. Thick, juicy, with a full-bodied mouthfeel, well-integrated acidity, and ripe tannin, this is another savory, exuberant and luscious Zinfandel that exhibits terrific craftsmanship. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
NVWE Notes: From its deeply rich aromatics, to its palate-coating fruit, extravagant spice and rooty undercurrents, this knockout Zin delivers everything that the designation “old vines” suggests. The nose neatly harmonizes scents of black cherry, raspberry, red currant jam, black plum, dried red cherry, violet and rose with savory notes that include black peppercorn, black tea, licorice root, vanilla, clove, cedar and leather. Everything is juicy-rich on the palate, where a blast of red and black fruits, peppery spice and licorice root dominates and carries through to a lingering finish where focus and balance are hallmarks. 100 cases produced, from a vineyard planted in 1930.
