Bucklin Zinfandel Sonoma County Bambino Old Hill Ranch 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This intensely perfumed Zinfandel blend is produced in extremely small quantities and shows intoxicating aromas of wildflowers and dried cherries. Made from a field blend of over a dozen varieties of organic grapes, this wine is pure velvet in the mouth and finishes with flavors of leather and dried black currant. This is memorable juice!

Old Hill Ranch is an historic jewel. It was founded by William McPherson Hill in 1851. Our mother and stepfather, Anne and Otto Teller, purchased the vineyard in 1981 and sold grapes to Joel Peterson at Ravenswood Winery for their top tier vineyard designate Old Hill Ranch Zinfandel. Bucklin and Ravenswood are the sole producers of wine from the vineyard. We are a small producer and our annual production is about 2000 cases. We do not have a tasting room but we love to show off our vineyard and wines when time allows. Read less

I tasted this in December 2009. A fairly tannic zin that is very musty on the nose. Also with aromas of blackberry and stone fruit.

This intense red field blend comprised of mostly Zinfandel with Petit Syrah & Grenache is cultivated by vineyard manager Phil Coturri (Tony Coturri’s brother). Jammy with lots of vanilla & baking spice, but is tempered by balanced acidity & fine tannins, a combination that makes this an ideal barbecue wine - or something for a savory winter stew.

This intense Zinfandel will surprise you. The vineyard manager is Phil Coturri of the remarkable Coturri family of Sonoma. This shows jam fruits, lots of mixed dark berries, warm spices and vanilla. The acidity is well balanced with the fine tannins, a combination that makes this an ideal barbecue wine - or something for a savory winter stew.
