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.
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.
