Fields Family Wines Tempranillo 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Bottled march first Tight and showing significant wood on the nose, perhaps more used than new but it's there. Once one gets past the oak the nose is full of sweet violets, peppery and dried meat tones accenting the wild boysenberry fruit that shows some hints of pomegranate. Elegant and polished on entry, this fills out on the midpalate turning round and opulent with lovely depth to the rich soil tones, bits of leather and juniper framing the little blueberry and black cherry fruit. This is broad, rich yet with elegance and great aromatics in the mouth, with tannins that pop a little on the long deep and powerful finish. This is intense and clear, and just so well done. 91pts

  Fields Family Wines is not just a winery, it’s also a collection. Not a collection of wineries, but a collection of family and friends, all working together to make the vineyard what it is today. After years of searching for the perfect land, the Fields family decided on a place along Woodbridge Road, in the heart of the Lodi appellation. With the help of Ryan Sherman, their winemaker, and the constant care of the Fields family, including Russ, Melinda, Van, Zack, and Mia, they collected their first harvest at the end of 2007. There are three main grapes grown at the Fields Family’s vineyards: Organic Syrah, Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon, and Old Vine Zinfandel. The Syrah has been certified organic, and the highly demanded grapes are used in both the Field Family Wines label as well as in other wines throughout California. Read less

Very pretty nose full of a little herbal spice over a solid base of floral and soil toned blueberries and black raspberry aromas. This is rather big on entry but it shows super clarity on the palate with fine dusty tannins that show a bit of polish. On the palate there’s a little bit of cocoa then herb and floral framed slightly dried aromatic red berry fruit. With good acids driving the rather long finish, this ends on a rich note of juicy, slightly baked blackberry fruit that does show a touch of heat. 90pts
