2013 VALDEZ “ST PETER’S CHURCH VINEYARD” ZINFANDEL

$45.00 $45.00

When comparing the Valdez St. Peter’s Church Vineyard Zin to all of the others that I’ve tasted over the years, it’s number one in my mind.  Detailed, intense, penetrating, balanced are all perfect descriptors for this wine… The winery is owned by Ulises Valdez, one of California’s most accomplished wine growers.  When he’s not farming vineyards for Aubert, Kistler, Paul Hobbs and others, he’s furthering his dream of building a successful brand.  I’ve always believed that “perfect” wines are exceptional to nearly everyone who tastes them, regardless of varietal.  This is one of those and fortunately it’s a Zinfandel, which happens to be the perfect complement to summer barbecues…

Arising from a 5 acre vineyard in Alexander Valley that’s planted to nearly century old vines, this wine exhibits all the qualities that I look for in Old Vine Zinfandel. Rosenblum fans might also recognize this vineyard from single vineyard Zinfandels that they produced in the 1990’s.  Carved from a vintage unanimously recognized for its unrivaled quality, Robert Parker alerts readers that it “…may turn out to be the finest vintage I have experienced in tasting North Coast varietals over the last 37 years,”  this exemplary ancient vine Zinfandel absolutely shouldn’t be missed…

Description

Winery Notes: “This wine’s fruit is sourced from a 5-acre vineyard located behind the St. Peter’s Catholic church in Cloverdale, CA. A fourth of this 5-acre vineyard contains 90+ year-old zinfandel vines that produce some intensely concentrated flavors. Our St. Peter’s church zinfandel is fermented with native yeast and is aged in 100% French oak barrels (40% new). This bold zinfandel boasts flavors and aromas of dark juicy blackberries, black currants, hints of cocoa and tobacco leaf. Elegant tannins grip on the palate for beautiful long finish…”
