Doug Nalle is a no nonsense kind of guy, at least judging from my limited interactions with him. His wines support that these are unfettered, unadorned, elegant, focused Zinfandels. Nalle’s website promotes the fact that he has made only one vintage over 14% alcohol, a nearly unheard of feat with Zinfandel!
So what do you get with Nalle? An old school, Claret style of wine which explodes with strawberry fruit, has a firm but balanced backbone, and does everything a wine is supposed to do well. It ages well, it goes with food well, it even sits well when you drink a whole bottle!
This is the off-Broadway performance of Zinfandel.
