2015 Scherrer Zinfandel Old & Mature Vines Alexander Valley
A very nice mixture of red, black and blue fruits is still on the forefront yet anchored/balanced by fresh loam and savory nuances. On the mouth it gently takes over command in a very sneaky way. It is a ‘plushly’ textured middle-weight wine with lots of flavor. Bright, acidity gives just enough of an upward trajectory to the finish. My favorite part is a sense of transparency to the flavors: Nothing too assertive, everything in its place taking turns shining, for a moment. What it may lack in quantity due to the lower crop is made up for in quality and grace.
Sleek and seamless, with briary wild berry aromas and elegantly layered raspberry, dried sage and white pepper flavors. Drink now through 2024.
