Macchia Dangerous Port Amador County Linsteadt Vineyard 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Zinfandel and Barbera Reticent and soft on the nose with a little marshmallow and subtle vanilla, licorice, fudge and candied fruit notes. This is smooth and polished in the mouth with a rich lightly sweet red fruited midpalate that turns plummy on the back end and onto the long finish. This is lovely and nuanced if a bit small in the mouth, very clear with a precise feel that shows a lovely transition from smooth palate to tactile and spiced finish. 88pts

It is a tried-and-true strategy for making exceptional wines that Tim Holdener says is at the heart of his winemaking philosophy. Well aware of the potential for quality that was long ignored by many winemakers outside the Lodi area; the Holdeners make a variety of different Zinfandels, each sporting its own distinctive qualities.
