Louis M. Martini Zinfandel Sonoma County Ghost Pines Zinfandel 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Sourcing from both the Sonoma and San Joaquin appellations allows our winemaker to blend a wine which accentuates the best of what each region has to offer. Sonoma County Zinfandel offers lush fruit, with flavors of savory dark spices and concentrated intensity. The San Joaquin County Zinfandel adds jammy red raspberry and strawberry flavors along with a strong, rich structure. The result is our 2009 Ghost Pines Zinfandel, opening with flavors of dark blackberries, raspberry and strawberry jam with a subtle nutty aromas of dried oat and sweet toast. Full and balanced, our Zinfandel boasts rich, chewy tannins that lead to a long and supple finish.

Louis M. Martini Winery:
We believe that Cabernet Sauvignon is the most noble of grapes. We believe that great winemaking begins with great vineyards, and we want the land to speak through our wines. Our wines express the best characteristics of Cabernet, the personality of the special places where our grapes are grown, and the vision and skill of the winemaker in blending balanced, engaging, and memorable wines.

This has a really nice balsamic edge to the nose, bordering on eucalyptus with some smoky oak top notes over creamy raspberry fruit that shows some pomegranate spice. Soft and a little low acid in the mouth, this does deliver a nice array of varietal flavors, bramble, blackberry and spice. This has a nice black cherry follow through but the finish fades away and the wine is just a little too ponderous. A bit sticky and extracted on the finish as well. 84pts

Wood notes, blackberry, and pepper. Smooth attack with nice umami feeling in the midpalate, some other fruit flavors like strawberry and cherry come out towards the finish, with some minerality.
