Our newly released Russian River Zinfandel comes from the Salzgeber Chan family vineyard that is tucked back in the hills west of Healdsburg next to the Mac Murray Ranch. The Zinfandel is in true Russian River style and has bright red berry fruits, good acid and firm structure. There is a brilliant clarity of fruit, married with lovely butterscotch- and vanilla creme, followed by a delicate white pepper spice. The finish is long and smooth and inviting for another glass. The wine was aged in 100% new French oak for 9 months and has developed a lovely richness to compliment the red berry fruit from this region.

We joined the wine club last year and received a bottle of the 2010 Zin in our last shipment. The description above is right on, wonderful fruit and very smooth. Fantastic wine!
