2017 GAMBA “OLD VINE” ESTATE, ZINFANDEL

$52.00 $49.99 $49.99

What pairs best with Memorial Day & 4th of July holidays?  For me, the answer is Zinfandel. Although the grape allegedly originated in Croatia, Zinfandel thrives better in California than any place else, period.  For that reason, Zinfandel is a purely American creation.  If I had to choose only one Zinfandel to serve, it would have to be Gamba.  A perennial crowd favorite and proving to be top contenders on California’s Zinfandel scene, Gus Gamba’s old vine Zinfandels are gaining world-wide acclaim.  After Robert Parker’s latest visit to the winery, he alerted readers “…Gamba’s name is going to have to be included with some of the stars of Sonoma, such as Hartford Court, Carlisle, Bedrock and even the superstar Turley over in Napa.”

Fashioned from an organically farmed vineyard planted in 1920, the ancient vines have relied on winter rains as their sole source of irrigation for over 95 years.  Yielding just 1.5 tons per acre of strikingly intense, concentrated, pristinely focused fruit, the 2017 exhibits all the qualities that I look for in Old Vine Zinfandel.  At $49.99 it’s simply stunning… We had tasted the 2017 when it was first bottled earlier this year and again recently with owner Gus Gamba, and it’s developed into one of his best ever.

Winemaker notes: “The exciting 2017 Gamba Estate Old Vine Zinfandel is brilliant, with bright ruby hues that beckon in the bowl of the glass. The aroma offers raspberries, dried herbs, vanilla and intense rainier cherry aromas. Medium to full in body, as the wine breathes, the palate bursts with fresh red and blue berries, stone fruit, nectarine and ripe cherry that evolve into delicious holiday spices and notes of sandalwood. The mouthfeel is polished and bright, with mild, mouth-watering tannins, making for a complex wine that is focused and enjoyable from beginning to end. The finish is lengthy, with waves of gushing bright fruit and a pleasant lifting acidity that echoes with toasty oak.”
