2019 Zinfandel, 1925/1939 Old Vine, Alexander Valley

Woodenhead Winery on Mar 21, 2022

Medium dark ruby in color. Aromas of sweet briar predominate, dark fruits with a little creamy toasted oak. Maybe a little rose and Earl Grey tea also. Mouthfilling, almost explosive (in a good way). Dark plums and berries, blueberries and blood orange. Asian spices underlay with interesting herbal characteristics. Not a blockbuster, but restrained in a good way. Substantial yet elegant, finishes long and lip smacking. Drinking well now, but I believe it will age well. Fun stuff, wish I could make it again! Artisan sausages (Caggiano smoked duck for instance), a killer wood fired pepperoni or linguica pizza, or spaghetti and meatballs. Cheers!
