2015 Zinfandel, Ponzo Vineyard 1.5L Magnum
Best of Class - SF Chronicle
90 points - Wine Enthusiast
90 points - CA Grapevine
Ponzo Vineyard is located just outside the town limits of Healdsburg, along the Russian River at the mouth of Dry Creek. Its gravelly bench-lands have produced extremely sought-after wines throughout the years. Our first vintage of Ponzo Zin was in 2005 and many of our vintages since then have become multiple medal-winners. The 2015 vintage is another blockbuster, having swept the SF Chronicle Wine Competition with a Best of Class award! This full-bodied Zinfandel is lush and bursting with flavors of black cherry and blackberry cobbler. Aromas of dark ripe fruit will immediately greet you in the glass. A touch of Petite Sirah adds body and depth to complete this wine. This wine is irresistible and ready to enjoy now, and for many years to come.
"Medium-dark ruby; forward, brambly, spicy, red berry fruit aroma; full body; rich, ripe, creamy, raspberry and boysenberry flavors; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Very highly recommended." -CA Grapevine
