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

Martinelli
Zinfandel
"Jackass Vineyard" Russian River Valley
2014

$120.00

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.
