Waterstone Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2005

Member Review by judgelog:

Terrifically aromatic - it filled the room with a great aroma when I decanted it. Very dark ruby color. Lots of cherry and dark fruit flavors. Finish is fairly long, with a nice raspberry note at the end. Tannins are firm but silky. Paired this with a coffee and pepper crusted beef tenderloin and it worked well. Great QPR - compares well with a Cabs at twice the price.

Three vineyards, four Zinfandels and one shared passion for the pursuit of small lot, single-vineyard wines are the driving force behind one of California's newest wineries, Z-52 . Seasoned winemaker Philip Zorn and veteran wine executive Brent Shortridge wear all the hats at Z-52, and their dedication to distinctive Zinfandels is evident at every turn. The heart and soul of this boutique winery, named for the shared “Z” in both Zinfandel and Zorn, (the 52 references the 52 weeks in a vintage year, 52 rows in Agnes' Vineyard, and 52 cards in a full deck) is its commitment to producing high-end Zinfandels from some of the oldest vineyards in the Lodi and Amador County regions. Z-52 ‘s minimalist approach to winemaking embraces the notion that terroir and its influence on grape character is essential to producing outstanding Zinfandel. Read less
