Project Paso Zinfandel Old Vine 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smoky and decidedly oaky on the nose, redolent of vanilla, ginger, toasted baking spices and cola along with some zinberry fruit. Smooth and supple in the mouth with a nice blend of bright acids and polished little tannins supporting juicy and very fresh brambly raspberry fruit flavors. the oak is obvious in the mouth as well but it plays mostly a supporting role allowing the fruit here to shine. This is definitely easy to drink and while not a classic Zinfandel it’s easily identifiable as Zin and a great value at this price. People should love this. 87pts

  To Don Sebastiani and Sons, family is clearly an important aspect of winemaking. While Don Sebastiani and Sons wasn’t founded until 2001, Samuele Sebastiani created a winery in 1904, and started growing the company, as well as the town of Sonoma. Over the years, the winery changed hands many times, but it always stayed within the family. By 2000, the winery was producing eight million cases of wine a year. However, at that time, Don Sebastiani sold many of the assets and kept only the family brand and the Sonoma winery and vineyards. Though he stepped down as CEO and Chairman in 2000, that wasn’t the end for him. In 2001, he and his sons, Donny and August, founded Don Sebastiani and Sons, eventually growing production back up to two million cases annually. Today, Greg Kitchens and Michelle McClendon, winemakers for Don Sebastiani and Sons, strive to produce high-end wine at affordable prices. They don’t just source grapes from California - they’ve also formed partnerships to create Australian and Chilean blends, further expanding the company’s reach and complexity. Read less
