GDP's California Zinfandels

55. Woodenhead Zinfandel Martinelli Road Vineyard Old Vine Russian River Valley (2007)

« Prev Next » 55 of 77
Intense, almost candied aromas of toasty oak, sandlewood, a little white pepper, and dried cranberry rise from the glass. This is surprisingly light on the palate, full of deep red berry fruit; the alcohol is obvious, if not particularly intrusive, though it does become more bothersome on the finish. There’s lots of candied cherry and strawberry candy on the palate, with some nice bramble notes and candied black berry emerging with air. The finish is a bit shortened from the alcohol. 88 points

They only produce 4 varietal of Reds, Merlot, Syrah, Cab, and Zin, and they don't sell anything less that 9 years old. Currently working on their 2003 vintage. They are located at 5185 Union Road, across the street from Pear Valley. The owner is from Italy, and makes his own pasta and sauce, sausage, and salami, which he serves in his restaurant, which is on site. His fresh pizza's are to die for. If you haven't been there you need to try it, his wines are soooo smooth.
