Fetzer Zinfandel Mendocino County Home Vineyard Fetzer Vineyards 1980

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

At KL's rooftop party this was popped and poured. Somewhat ungiving aromatically with arth, redwood, and faint notes of fruit but in the mouth there was fresh structure with good balance, supportive acidity and some round tannins buffered by cedary fruit that was a bit anonymous but complex anough and rich enough to be interesting and worth drinking. Pretty remarkable bottle of young vine zin!
