Wine Guerrilla Alexander Valley Zinfandel Harris-Kratka Vineyard 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Brambly and chocolatey on first smell, with spicy blackberry and boysenberry fruit balanced by noticeably spicy toast and cinnamon notes. Liquory and meaty-smelling. Rich and soft on entry, with a broad feel in the mouth. The acid perks up on the mid-palate, which has nicely measured cherry fruit with attractive brambly elements and gentle woodspice notes that lead to the modest, earthy finish. 87pts

Wine Guerrilla is a hero to those who seek wines of unabashed uniqueness and character. Wherever proud zinfandel grapes are oppressed and the taste buds of consumers are in peril, Wine Guerrilla is there. The name, “Wine Guerrilla,” reflects a unique approach to winemaking and marketing. Having begun as a broker of fine small-production artisinal wines, Wine Guerrilla brings together a vision of a reasonably priced premium wine with a passion for California’s native grape, zinfandel, a knowledge of the Sonoma region and existing relationships with many of the county’s best-known growers. The result is something special. Wine Guerrilla operates on a singular mission: Finding the very best zinfandel grapes, and crafting wines worthy of the grape’s unique characteristics, and introducing those wines to the public. And eliminating the final barrier to instant wine-drinking gratification, Wine Guerrilla wines are bottled with easy-to-open screwtops. Read less
