Offers subtle, brooding power, combined with blackberry and licorice aromas and deep flavors of baking spices and smoky plum. Drink now through 2027. –TF Wine Spectator

The 2014 Old Vine Zin explodes from the glass with wonderful warm, penetrating aromas of crushed black fruit, cedar, roots and spice. On the palate the first impression is of a very soft, velvety liqueur coating the mouth with an initial hit of black pepper spice, coffee and black fruits, with the root components infusing themselves throughout. The mouthfeel is rich and full-bodied with a very long finish. This vintage is ready to enjoy now, but will age well for 7+ years.

With our Old Vine Zin there is no separation on varietals; they are crushed and co-fermented together. We performed a four-day cold soak after we completely destemmed all the fruit, and once the native fermentation commenced we performed punch downs twice daily. After three weeks we pressed directly to barrel, of which 20% were one year old French Oak. We performed only three rackings off the gross lees and splashed heavily as we returned the wine to barrel. Bottling occurred 16 months after fermentation. Unfined with minimal coarse filtration only.
