Martinelli-Zinfandel-"Jackass Vineyard" Russian River Valley-2014

"Jackass Vineyard" Russian River Valley


Jackass vines planted in the early to mid 1880s. Still producing amazing Zin grapes for this benchmark California Zinfandel. Shows purity of Zin fruit (black raspberry & blueberry jam) + old vine Zin flavors of dry-aged beef, smoked herbs, licorice, soy sauce and fire pit smoke. Powerful, but not “too much.” Have it with top-notch real barbecue.    

“Absolutely ravishingly rich, extravagantly full-bodied and unctuously textured, with notes of charcuterie, barbecue meats, smoke, herbs, blackberry, cassis and a finish that just oozes over the palate with no hard edges. This is the quintessential old vine Zinfandel and a remarkable effort. Drink it over the next 15-20+ years. 16.6% natural alcohol, 217 cases made.” Robert Parker, March 2016.
