Rating: 93/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. From its keenly defined sweet-berry aromas to its tailored oak richness and its fine sense of balance, this Zinfandel impresses as a serious effort that is meant for the cellar rather than one to be drunk in its youth. Tight and very well-structured with a long, layered finish, it shows a slight trim of last-minute heat, but its wonderfully persistent fruit tags it as a sure bet for aging, and, given this winery's track record for making wines that last, it seems certain to grow for at least a half-dozen years and might improve for many more.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

Mike Grgich, founder of Grgich Hills has a unique connection to Zinfadel. Grape scientists have determined that the Zinfandel grown in California whose origins had been unclear for decades, is actually from Croatia; Mike Grigch's homland! He has since gone back and produced great Zin's in him homeland that mirror the wines he produces here. His vineyard in Calistoga where these grapes are sourced is certified organic and biodynamic. The wine is fermented slowly and then aged 15 months in large oak casks. It's blended with about 5% Petite Sirah. Connisseurs Guide scored it 92 points and said "So enriched by sweet oak that its very deep, berry-like fruit takes a moment to catch up with its initial aromas of sweet cream, cappuccino, root beer and toast, this opulent Zin finds a niche all its own. It is wonderfully supple with a fine spine of tannin that firms without being overly obvious, and its layered flavors reflect all the complexity of its nose. A bit of last- minute heat and a little chalky astringency hold it back from even higher scores, but, given the winery's track record for making long-lived wines, it is fairly safe to assume that this one is still far from reaching its best." Limited!

Wine Tasting NotesThis darkly colored wine almost glows in the glass with lively flavors and aromas of strawberries, raspberries, with a touch of forest floor and leather. We also grow a bit of Petite Sirah at this vineyard, which we co-fermented with the Zinfandel to add even more spice and body. This elegant wine has a wonderful texture and is well balanced between acidity and alcohol. Enjoy with grilled meats, pizza and pastas.
