Scherrer Winery Zinfandel Alexander Valley Old and Mature Vines Scherrer Vineyard 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Inky ruby. Cassis, mulberry and licorice aromas give way to brighter red berries and flowers with air. Sappy raspberry, cherry and plum flavors are velvety in texture and seem devoid of tannins. Very rich, almost creamy zinfandel with excellent cling and sweetness. A late jolt of minerals adds energy to the finish. For such a rich wine, this is surprisingly light on its feet. (May/Jun 2009)
