Medusa Hoodoo Creek Zinfandel 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

This dry-farmed vineyard planted in the mid 1930's rests on the north side of Mount St. Helena in Lake County. The now extinct ancient river bed of cobblestone minerals and quartz make this one of the most intense and unique wines we offer. Low yields offer a rich texture and firm structure with notes of chocolate leather cracked pepper and bold black fruits.Harvest Date: October 1 2005 Varietal Blend: Zinfandel Oak Aging: 100% French Oak for 8 Months Cases Produced: 435 Release Date: September 1 2007

Gnarled, twisted old Zinfandel vines were the inspiration behind the Medusa wines logo, named for the snake-haired figure of Greek mythology. Winemaker, Rob Mondavi Jr., and his partners, wife Lydia Mondavi, Patti McKiernan and Geoff Whitman, are committed to crafting single-vineyard, old-vine Zinfandel from some of California’s best appellations. The current releases hail from four different prime growing regions: Pig Pen Vineyard from the Deaver Ranch in Amador County; Lover's Lane Vineyard in Mendocino; Hoodoo Creek Vineyard in Lake County; and the Creekside Block of Bar 49 Vineyard in Chiles Valley in northeast Napa Valley. Each of these sites contributes distinctive and intensely concentrated character for these truly terroir-driven Zinfandel expressions. Read less

Dark plummy nise of heavy baking sice and black cherry. Some underbrush. Kirsch, cherry, plum and big baking spice lead by cinnamon on the palate. It's difficult to pair well with foid and likewise drink on its own due to the heavy focus on spice. Good texture and flavor profile otherwise. 84pts.
