Gamba Old Vine Zinfandel Moratto Vineyard Zinfandel 2003

Gamba Old Vine Zin. 2003. Dry farmed. Organic. Put a thick dark juicy raspberry in the sun and let it dry out to nothing. Then put it in your mouth and chew. There, you're tasting a Gamba zin. Pure dark red rasberry. A lot of it. You can still taste a bit of the briar patch too. And the sun on the leaves. Untainted by much else. Pure, concentrated berry jam in a bottle, balanced with some blackberry leaves, some pepper and not much else. It's pure and rich and gorgeous. You can tell this winemaker stepped aside and let mother nature, super old vines, and the wonderful terroir of the Moratto vineyard do it's voodoo. This is purple wine. And make sure the BBQ is hot when you open it. Keep it simple. A bison burger is perfect but ANY burger will do. And skewers of mushrooms, peppers and herloom tomatoes. Did I mention I love this wine?  - JM
