The palate is over the top lush, sweet and round with just enough mineral backbone to the keep the finish going on and on and on.
Ratings
94 Pts Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate "The 2014 Zinfandel Sweetwater Springs is 100% Zinfandel aged in 20% new French oak, and a big boy at 15.6% alcohol. This has a killer bouquet of blackberries, spring flowers, pepper, spice, baking spices and gorgeously proportioned, full-bodied, opulent mouthfeel. This is a stunner. Rich, concentrated, full-bodied and, again, the high-octane is well-disguised behind the extravagant fruit. Drink it over the next 7-10 years."
Awards
90 Pts Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine "Dark berries are overlain by a bit of mildly creamy oak and accented by scattered touches of briary varietal spice first in the nose and then again in the fully ripe flavors of this big, fairly well-structured young Zin, and, while slightly less dramatic than a few of its cellarmates, the wine is never less than generously filled. It, too, is moderately tannic, but even though astringency and unhidden heat tend to stand out at the finish, fruit fights through and ultimately wins the day. Aging is again requisite before it finds real cohesion, and three to five years look sure to do the trick." 90 Pts Wine Spectator "Full-bodied, ripe and focused, with supple and well-built blueberry, herbes de Provence and pepper notes." Drink now through 2024. 300 cases made. –TF
Vineyard Notes
Landy's Sweetwater Springs Vineyard in the Russian River Valley, at 55 degree slopes, creates stress on the vines, thus the fruit, the same grape selection as St. Peter's Church, is very concentrated.
