2018 Old Vine Zinfandel, Alegria Vineyard 1.5L Magnum
90 Points - CA Grapevine Review
This is a new vineyard source, hailing from just down the road from the old Ponzo Vineyard- we are proud to introduce the Alegria Vineyard! Owned by Acorn Winery, the Alegria Vineyard's Zinfandel vines are planted to a field blend of Zinfandel, Alicante Bouschet and Petite Sirah. This upper corner of the Russian River Valley is slightly warmer than the rest of its viticulture area (AVA) and a stones throw from Downtown Healdsburg.

On the nose: Black cherry, fragrant violet notes, baking spice and strawberry On the palate: Full bodied, blackberry, ripe raspberry, cocoa and cola
"Medium-dark ruby; fragrant, ripe, spicy, red and black berry, and dark cherry fruit aroma with hints of cinnamon, chocolate, dried herbs, and sandalwood; full body; deep, rich, ripe, rounded, briary, peppery, red and black fruit flavors with undertones of toasty oak and some creaminess in the mouthfeel; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Shows appealing, youthful richness, but deserves a few more years of bottle aging. Very highly recommended." - CA Grapevine Review
