Scherrer Winery Zinfandel Alexander Valley Scherrer Shale Terrace 2011

Member Review by vin0vin0:

Fred's done it again. This excellent zin is full of ripe dark fruit. I get some rhubarb and dark cherry, great acidity, a little smoke and overall fantastic balance. This is very fresh and young so I'm going to do my best to hold on to the rest of these bottles for a while, though that may be easier said than done.

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

Fantastic zin from Scherrer. Lots of bright red fruit and mouth watering acidity - very Pinot like. This wine practically jumps out of the glass and thoroughly coats your tongue. Great finish. It's going to be difficult to keep much of this around until is matures but it should only get better with some bottle time. Unfortunately, they sold out on futures, fortunately, I got some.

Fantastic zin from Fred. As usual, well balanced with dark and medium red fruit, medium tannins and just a very drinkable/likeable wine. Went very well with sausages on the grill and summer veggies. I'll keep my Scherrer zin futures orders going as long as they keep making wine like this.
