2009 V. Sattui Winery Quaglia Vineyard Zinfandel, Old Vine Zinfandel, Napa Valley, CA, $42 (S) – Rating 92

From an “old vine” vineyard which includes Petite Sirah and Carignane in the field blend. A beautifully smokey nose with notes of dark berries and spice. A leaner style than some jammy Zins. Very balanced with flavors of dark berry, blueberry, ripe plum, black pepper with notes of cocoa and espresso in the long finish. Patience will be rewarded …Give the wine at least 30 minutes to open up. Buy This Wine
