2004 - Fanucchi Vineyards Zinfandel Old Vines
One of the best Zinfandels Ever!
Nov 03, 2010
1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star
I am a Fanucchi Vineyards fan & I believe I have had some of every vintage in my cellar. Fanucchi Zinfandel ages well and I agreee with Peter the 2004 is outstanding: Deep, thick, fully ripe but as always not to excess! This is one to stock up on while you can. It is great now but it's probably not even at it's peak yet!     It is almost inpossible to find- they don't even have a tasting room, they do have on-line sales: https://www.fanucchivineyards.com/order/index.asp

What a treat to eat with Turkey. This wine is high octane 17.2 % but I did not notice. A rich silky wine with the bouquet of  leather, dark berries and pepper. The entire family enjoyed the wine and the colorful label.

Wow! This is truly a rare find. A full-bodied wine, perfectly balanced, from a rare truly Old -Over 100 year old- vines with genuine story. It is great now & evolves in the glass. Drink is slowly now & for many, many years to come!

This Zinfandel has the classic ripe blackberry blue berry fruit & deep complexity... It's fun, interesting, deep & thick but never over the top!

2004 - Kendall Jackson Zinfandel Grand Reserve California
Green but Good
Jun 11, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star
Liked this wine. Strong vegetal/green pepper aromas as soon as I pulled the cork. Not much fruit to detect in the nose. Sharp sour fruit flavors immediately on palate (cranberry, sour cherry). Some red fruit hints buried in there. Firm lingering tannins. Somehow still enjoyable. Would like to pair it with pepper-crusted steak.

2005 - Ridge Zinfandel Dusi Ranch
Good but not great
Jun 08, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star
This is another good vintage, but I'm not rushing out to buy more than the two bottles the winery sent us.  The 2005 is certainly not a disappointment. Understated and balanced all the way through (for Sonoma Zin), there is an overall impression of strawberry jam and black cherries. Finish is strong but the length is a little disappointing.

Very yummy with big fruit and easy to drink. It has a nice deep color. The nose has aromas of red fruit & pepper. The flavors have more fruit & jam. The wine is smooth and easy on the mouth. It is easy to drink and enjoy with food.

This is a good bottle but unlike previous vintages, I don't think it has the guts to last. Very well-structured expression of California terroir. Everything that a zin should have - but well balanced and never over the top. It's just lighter in style and I think it will fade quick.

Solid

Another solid vintage from this vineyard. It's very fruit forward, but not a fruit bomb. It's well rounded,  sexy, and extremely versatile. Ridge can't make a bad wine. At least not that I've had.

Good wine that taste very simple. Very smooth with a mild, but nice nose. Unlike the majority of California Zins, this is not in your face with fruit or alcohol.  This tastes more like an old vines zinfandel. Good stuff and would buy again.

Good Vintage Again!

This was more fruit forward than the 2001 but slightly less complex.  Overall it was solid if a bit out of balance. Has that dry creek nose of rasperry confit all wrapped in a bright, medium bodied frame. Considering the price it's still a great buy.

Yum Yum indeed! This had very nice legs and an extremely spicy finish on the end. Overall a great zin with yummy raspberry fruit but made complex by the interesting spice component- I will buy this again.

Big and Raisins

1 star 1 star
Big bold zin, with lots of raisin and ripe grape flavors.  This wine is a little too fruit forward or raisiny for my taste.  The oak is all over this wine as well.  For the money I would pass. Other vintages have been about the same to me.

Good Value

Another solid vintage from renwood.  Very enjoyable zinfandel. Has some spicy, cedar, and blackberry on the nose. Not as fruit forward on the nose as other zins but I enjoy that. Slightly tannic on the mouth but with vanilla, cherry and some smoke. Slightly grippy on the finish but a nice bottle overall

This Cali zin has great balance of fruit, tannins, acidity, and alchohol. Lots of great dried raspberry, tar, cedar, leather, brown sugar and baking spice flavors and aromas. Smooth tannins and just enough acidity to keep it lively.

2000 - Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard
Pass
Jun 03, 2008
1 star 1 star
Not Rosenblums best.  Overall the oak just weighs in too much into the fruit which is already a little bit flabby.  This would be an ok wine with pizza or spagehtti but the light chalky cherry flavors don't go far enough to be drunk on its own.

Horrid
Jun 03, 2008

This was horrid! It was so vile. I'm so tired of these wines being in the market place. A friend offered it to me at their house. I changed to beer afterward, which I hate.  This is like rubbing alcohol.
