Deep red fruit and baking spices, vanilla and chocolate, with a long slightly hot finish predominantly of tar and the darkest of chocolate. Read more

Dark chocolate and spice on the nose. Surprisingly light in the mouth and a light syrupy quality. A little sour on the finish. Read more

Zinfandel planted in 1893 on a warm site in red soil that straddles Alexander valley and the Russian River Valley that is usually harvested early. 100% Zinfandel 30% new wood. Tarry and earthy on the nose with a dark, oily streak to the candied blackberry fruit. Bright and silky in the mouth with superb tannins that are wonderfully embedded in the spicy blackberry fruit that soaks the palate. These are some sneaky tannins that gain strength on the finish and drive the black raspberry fruit tones. 92pts

The 2007 vintage of Big River Zinfandel expresses the most pure characteristics of old vine Zinfandel with a combination of concentration, complexity, and a richness that is unsurpassable. This wine has broad aromas of cassis, black olives, and minerals, yet is filled with jammy raspberry characteristics. The finish is sappy, pure, and seductively graceful. Its soft, round, plumy flavors are the essence of old vines expressing their 'old vineness.'
