2016 Frediani Zinfandel

2016 Frediani Zinfandel Image

Of all the vineyard blocks we work with each year, none have a greater personal meaning to us than Zinfandel grown by Jim Frediani. You see, Jim has more vineyard knowledge in the cuff of his jeans than we could ever attain in a lifetime – and his 60-year old head-trained Zinfandel vines produce fruit so amazingly intense and pure that we feel blessed to be the ones to capture this magic in a bottle.

If you want big Zin, you'll need to find some that have been through the crucible. Jim's valley-floor Zinfandel vineyard is bombarded with brutal heat during the daytime and chilled with frigid colds at night. This daily variance stresses the vines and produces fruit with unrivaled intensity.

On the 2016 vintage, you'll find black tea and dried cherry dominating the nose upfront intertwined with notes of tobacco leaf and subtle hints of lavender, cassis and bramble berry. Fat and juicy in the mouth, you'll find a dynamic contrast of cherry notes and an earthy savoriness tied together nicely with citrus pith. The delightfully lingering finish will keep you coming back for more.

I am reviewing the 2015. Wow!! this is what a zinfandel should be. Zingy acid, raspberry and dark fruit without being over done. Well done!
