Food Pairings for Joseph Swan Vineyards Zinfandel Russian River Valley Lone Redwood
This is almost always our most zin like zin. Although the vines were near 50 years old in 2004, it still showed that simple pure berry fruit character more than our other vineyards. Usually about 2-3 years from bottling it starts to develop some secondary complexity but the 2004 is a little slower than usual. Enjoyable for its pure unbridled pure berry fruit, perhaps more elderberry than blackberry, with nice richness and elegant tannins, it will nonetheless develop more nuances in the next two to three years for those who are looking for complexity from age. For the rest of you (and there certainly seem to be more of you than of me, it is really nice right now, especially with a couple of hours of aeration.
