Jc Cellars Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Iron Hill 2007

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Nose of peppery cola and dried red berries. Interesting as usually the jammy fruit comes through first and on this one, the pepper is up front. Some floral character, but it's a big red and black berry wine. Bright and layered pepper, spice and fruit. Wonderful pure fruit on the finish! - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 5/29/10

Varietals: 96% Zinfandel, 4% Petite Syrah Appellation: Sonoma Valley Alcohol: 15.8% Comments: Planted in 2000, Iron Hill's "old vines" flavor profile belies its age. It contains a sweet, concentrated briery fruit component of cherries and raspberries. This "briery" effect is a term usually used to describe "old vine" Zinfandel's of 75-100 years old, with prickly black pepper-like flecks on the tongue. This spicy finish is complimented by great depth and intensity. In a short period of time the volcanic rock soil, cooke clone, organic farming, and cropping at one ton per acre combine to give this vineyard its "old vine" effect.
