Editorial Reviews for Carol Shelton Wild Thing Old Vine Zinfandel Mendocino County
Deep briary nose a little poppy seeds, spice and black raspberry fruit with bitter chocolate shavings and coffee oak aromas. A big wine with layers of flavors, bitter cherry, musky, wild flowers and jammy black currant all framed with a little nutty oak and some fine green edginess here as well. The tannins are noticeable, acids bright, both contributing to a little tactile and dusty feel in the mouth but this turns very focused and steely on the backend with cherry skin notes, and a little wild blackberry thing going on. A little chewy and raw and sure to improve. 90pts
Four and a half glasses
Dark purple color but a clear wine and a bit lighter than I anticipated. Really strong and very nice fruit aroma, but I couldn't really pinpoint the aroma. Some sort of berry or currant it seemed. Well balanced - the fruit was strong but not overpowering. Medium finish. I don't recall having too many wines that use the natural yeast from grapes the way Carol Shelton does. I thought it was an interesting idea.
