Scherrer Old Mature Zinfandel 2012

Member Review by vin0vin0:

Just got my zin futures from Fred and couldn't resist tasting both the Shale Terrace and the Old and Mature vines. Old and Mature vines is a more bolder wine than the shale with more body, dark berry fruit, some jam but with good acidity. Great overall balance. Where the Shale is more Pinot like, the OMV has more of a syrah-ness to it.

Since our small winery’s first vintage in 1991, our goal has been to create handcrafted, full-flavored wines that express the personality of the unique Sonoma County vineyards where they are grown. Fred first became known for Zinfandel from his father’s Alexander Valley vineyard, and now his careful hand with Pinot Noir from the Russian River and Sonoma County has quietly gained attention and a steady following. That same attention has made Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah that exemplify the bounty of Sonoma County vineyards. Read less

Awesome zin from Russian River. Loads of bright red and blue fruit well balanced with good acidity and silky tannin. As good as it is now it will get better with some age that will take away the slight heat on the nose.

Clean and crisp, with bright red cherry, cranberry, great balance and good acidity. Not the big jammy kind of zin but refined and restrained like most of Fred's wines - excellent.

Yum! Just stumbled across this in the local store and gave it a try on a whim. Fabulous! I went back the next day and bought the other three bottles they had left.

Very easy to drink and flavor filled zin. Opened quickly. Worried about cork - it was very soft. Removed carefully and strained into decanter. Served with spicy ribs. Gift from jvw, Jane, Jill, Linda. Delish!

Deep aromas of black cherry and berry fruit enhanced by vanilla, oak and clove spice. Concentrated, ripe berry fruit on the palate with medium tannins.
