2014 Russian River Valley Zinfandel

Helen and Charles Bacigalupi started farming their precious old vine grapes in the Russian River Valley in 1956. The Bacigalupis were about 50 years ahead of the sustainable agriculture movement, avoiding chemicals and tilling and then training vines as high as four feet above the ground to improve air circulation. Zin from this vineyard is rare, natural and absolutely perfect. We think you’ll agree.

Call us superficial, but we like a wine that looks good in a glass. Stunningly ruby red in color, this wine serves up really elegant raspberry and blueberry aromas right off the bat. Across the palate, bright red fruit flavors of raspberry, strawberry and some blackberry and complemented with more complex notes of stone and vanilla. Wonderfully balanced, with a lingering finish, this is the type of wine we pair with hamburgers.

The wine color is a medium dark, clear, crimson-ruby red color like a dark colored Beaujolais with great long hanging legs although its ABV is a high 14.9%; you would not know it however either via the nose or the tongue - extremely smooth!

It opened to a wonderful bouquet loaded with aromas to Bing cherry, red licorice, vanilla, butterscotch and a faint hint of peppercorn, white pepper and sage.

Surprisingly, one of the lighter bodied wines from T-Vine which are known for their heavier bodied robust wines. The entry was minimally acidic but after 15 mins. it settled to the well-known, smooth, fully encompassing harmoniously balanced, structurally sound and refined libation T-Vine wines exemplify.

This one however is less bold than expected but very well balanced with a backdoor tannic-neutral complexity reminiscent of a well-aged Burgundy wine. The finish was a cocoa powder & black tea, plethoric, silky-rich textured & long midpalate polish.

I am not usually a fan of zinfandel but after trying this in the T-vine tasting room, I had to purchase a bottle. A couple of months later, I enjoyed this bottle and had to purchase more. Oh my goodness. Please try this wine. It is outstanding!
