T-Vine Cellars Zinfandel Napa Valley 1994

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very dark color still youthful. Eucalyptus and jammy fruit soar from the glass but underneath there is great depth of dark minerality, burnt aromatic woods, rich soil tones and a note of violet candy. The entry is opulant and spicy with good acidity and soft tannins framing leathery dark plummy fruit but the midpalate is a bit hollow and the finish dies abruptly. The nose on this blend of 65% zin/35%mataro promises much more than the palate can delivery. this was fantastic a few years ago but is now firmly in decline.

T-Vine Cellars:
We are a very small winery located off the beaten path in Calistoga, behind the owner - winemaker's home. There are just 3 people that work at T-Vine. We market, sell and deliver all of our own wine in California.
