Topolos Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Rossi Ranch 1992

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Precise on the nose with smoky, grilled meat aromas that are deep with a rustic, savory edge, featuring lovely herbal, sage elements and notes of American oak. This smells like zin. Bright acids on entry, a touch unripe with green edges early on the palate, but then there’s lovely raspberry fruit framed by creamy oak, a little vanilla and lots of briary and green herb notes. This still has some power to it and fine length with an earthy, spicy finish. A powerful yet elegant wine thats a touch rustic but has good fruit with an appealing herbal sweetness. 87pts
