Gamba Vineyards and Winery is a small, family owned vineyard and winery business in Sonoma County, California. The over century old 27.5 acre Gamba Estate Vineyard parcel rests on th Eastern edge of the beautiful Russian River Valley Appellation, on gently rolling benchland above the valley floor. Planted to Zinfandel in 1900, the Gamba Estate Vineyard consists primarily of Old Vine Zinfandel, as well as small separate blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon. With ideal Southern exposure, the vineyard is bathed in sunlight during the growing season. On average the yield is small, in part due to nature, but also by design-approximately one half ton, and occasionally up to one ton per acre is harvested, depending on the vigor of vineyard block and severity of pruning. The vines are organically dry farmed. The dry farming method relies solely on yearly rainwater to irrigate the vineyard. This method will generally decrease tonnage, however, in exchange, the remaining fruit clusters achieve a wonderful concentration Read more »

  • Gamba Zinfandel Russian River Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    A party for the palate. Big, rich, voluptuous, and hedonistic. Yet there is an underlying acidity providing good balance that highlights the dark berry, bramble fruit component. Ultimately satisfying and delicious. Read More

    Interesting Zin. Fruity and almost jammy. It has a lot going on, leaning a little towards a dessert side. This was part of a wine tasting showdown. More on the tastings at http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/03/showdown-saturday.html Read More

  • Gamba "Old Vine-Estate" Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Just tasted my first bottle of the 2009 Gamba. Nose of fresh crushed berries, cedar and spice. Full mid palate with ripe fruits and hint of dark chocolate and a hint toasty oak on the finish. Big wine, not for the faint of heart. Gamba consistently crafts wines with full flavors, balanced and yummy, and this effort delivers! Read More

  • Gamba Zinfandel Russian River Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of oak on the meaty nose with deep, jammy black berry fruit thats accented by vanilla, and a nice briary backdrop. This is big in the mouth with peppery aromatics and bright, pure blackberry fruit. Theres a nice lightness here though the bed of modest tannins lends some firmness to the mid-palate that leads to a rather long, fruit and spic... Read More
