Vinum Cellars Zinfandel 2011

Member Review by puhnner:

Really pretty horrid this time, started with a bit of vinegar, then bright unripe cherry berry fruit, tart, nothing soft here; little if any oak or anything smouldering to smooth out the sharp feel...seemed just too young. Strange, because the bottle I had a while back, was quite good. Overall, that horrible feeling of smelling before seeing a partial glass of red left out all night after a dinner party that I missed.

Our basic winemaking philosophy is to work with great grape growers to develop the best fruit in the vineyard. We pick the grapes at optimal ripeness and gently process the fruit.

Our basic winemaking philosophy is to work with great grape growers to develop the best fruit in the vineyard. We pick the grapes at optimal ripeness and gently process the fruit. We are very experimental with yeast strains and use different cultures for each variety. Our whites are barrel fermented slowly and aged Sur Lies in small French Oak barrels. With our reds, skin contact is optimized by the use of small open top fermentors, hand punch downs and extended maceration before pressing. Our belief in the use of older French Oak barrels allows the varietal fruit of our wines to be expressed. We are committed to experimenting and learning new winemaking methods while preserving an old world approach. Read less

loved the nose on this wine - voluptuous notes of varying black fruits, brown/red spices, and and nuances of herbs and licorice. There is a minerality to the palate with some red fruit, nice acidity, palate is elegant and refined vs a powerful aromatic nose.
