Meeker Zinfandel Frozen Russian River Valley 2005

External Review by Vines Wine and Spirits:

Sweet, zippy, spicy red zinfandel, made in a faux-ice wine style. Sweet cherry, strawberry and raspberry have a dominant flavor, with white pepper and fresh acidity on the finish.

Charles and Molly Meeker bought their first vineyard in Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley in 1977, and thereafter, in 1984, established their winery -- The Meeker Vineyard -- with Charlie as the winemaker. In its early years, the winery specialized in Zinfandel, Cabernet and Chardonnay. The winery's first red wine release, a 1984 Zinfandel, was an instant success, winning eight wine competition medals and becoming the third most awarded Zin in the country that year. Thereafter, among other awards, the 1985 Meeker Zin was a Wine Spectator "Best Buy", the 1986 Zin was a "Spectator Selection", and the 1990 Zin was included among the Wine Spectator's "100 Best Wines of the World". During this period Charlie was also honored to present a Meeker Zinfandel at one of the famous Windows on the World wine dinners in New York. And Zinfandel wasn't the winery's only success – for example, the Spectator gave a 91 to one of Charlie's early Chardonnays. Read less

Love it! Excellent desert wine, especially when paired with high grade dark chocolate (72% cacao).

Porty nose, raisiny. Very raisiny taste, medium sweet. Not much acid, but that's ok here. Medium body. Juicy.

FroZin differs from a classic `ice wine` only in that we freeze newly crushed Zinfandel grapes and then later add newly pressed Zinfandel juice rather than pressing frozen whole grapes as they do in Germany Canada and other colder areas. For this reason our label indicates that the wine is `produced from grapes frozen post-harvest.` After freezing the almost pure water ice created by the process is discarded and the remaining concentrated juice ferments slowly throughout the winter and spring months until fermentation stops naturally. This dessert-style wine is delightful drunk young but should age wonderfully for many years to come - developing ever-greater aroma and flavor complexities.
