Scott Harvey Wines Vineyard 1869 Zinfandel 2007
Our wine company produces wines from Napa Valley and Amador County
Quite an intriguing Zin, and who doesn't want to say they've had a wine made from the oldest vineyard (officially at least) in California? Lots of dark red fruit and nice lively acidity. This took a lot longer to really open up than most zins but the evolution in the glass was quite nice. After a bit spices started to creep in with tiny hints of sweet tobacco and cedar. Long finish and nice balance.
EXCELLENT!!! Sweet fruit front. A little spice mid. Smooth finish. Just wonderful....
Lovely rich red wine
Four and a half glasses
