Fanucchi makes great Zinfandel. Compared to greatest Zinfandel this 2004 belongs among the best of the best (so it easily deserves five full glasses!) but the Fanucchi Vineyards 2005 eclipses the'04 by light years!

This is a big bold Zinfandel grown & produced by Peter Fanucchi. The stuff he grows on Wood Road & Sonoma's Russian River Valley. is always a rare treat! His style always captures the full fruit & eligance of the best Zinfandel in the state & also has the punch to satisfy those cravings with out being over done! This is ballanced & can easily age for 10 more years -- if you want too!

I've been a Fanucchi fan for a few years now & his wines are consistently in my personal top 10. Right now I really like both the Fanucchi 2002 & the 2004 Old Vine Zinfandel but I think the 2002 is much closer to it's prime while I think the 2004 may eventually be far superior I will be saving some 2004 & having more the 2002 in the coming months.

This Zinfandel well crafted & while it opens up & shows well now it will age well for years to come. Just wine points gave it 99 Points for good reason! This one has some punch! Make no mistake it’s a concentrated full bodied Zinfandel but is still balanced in the European tradition and is loaded with ripe black berry fruit, smooth tannins, black pepper & a complexity that just keeps on going!

This is a really impressive Old Vines Zin. Very Old World in it's approach, it's not overly fruity as I find some Zins to be. The nose speaks of figs with a hint of anise and a salty sweet hint of cashews. On your palate it's well rounded with firm tannins and a bit of pepper. The finish is nice and long, and I think this could be appreciated for several years to come.

The smell action sensation is that of a leather-bound book with LOTS of fruit (and a pinch of saltiness)... good layers in there for sure. The taste takes those sensations and adds a little chocolate covered cherry to the mix with equal amounts sweetness and spice, yum!

I've been looking forward to doing a vertical tasting of Peter Fanucchi's current vintages of Old Vine Zin (the 2004-2002-2001) and finally got the chance to do so yesterday. The experience DID NOT disappoint. We started with this, the 2004. The nose is exactly like a skinned cherry covered in sea salt... intriguing, and a nice break from the candied sweetness I've grown accustomed to in Zinfandel's in this reasonable price point. There are great flavors of ripe cherries, with a slight vegetable component, like asparagus and cherry pie. The finish is long and glorious, smooth fruit flavors lingering on my tongue for several minutes after the bottle is gone. A great effort that will age gloriously, as the 2002 and 2001 will attest.

The 2004 is an absolutely superb all around wine! Originally, nearly 10 years ago, I discovered Fanucchi Vineyards Trousseau Gris but then I tried the Zinfandel at a dinner in the Carnelian Room (on top of the B of A building in San Francisco) between the panoramic bird's eye view, the food, & most of all the Fanucchi Vineyards Old Vine Zinfandel I thought I was in Heaven!
