A beautiful purple / red color leads to aromatics that showcase very ripe and concentrated aromatics of black fruits and bramble. Raspberry and roasted herbs with a touch cinnamon stick and sarsaparilla root with a hint of vanilla bean. Full bodied but never heavy this wine is as complex as it is just fun to drink.

92 Pts Wine Spectator Deeply structured and distinctive, with expressive blackberry and cardamom aromas and burly but balanced currant, licorice and dark Asian spice flavors that lead to briary tannins. Drink now through 2024. ~TF 91 Pts Wine Advocate Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Zinfandel St. Peter's Church Vineyard has a nose of raspberry pie, blueberry compote and preserved plums with underlying hints of scorched earth, Indian spices, tobacco and stewed tea. Big, concentrated and full-bodied in the mouth, it has a racy line and a lovely plush texture, finishing with a compelling herbal lift.
89 Pts Jeb Dunnuck Coming from the Alexander Valley, the 2015 Zinfandel St. Peter's Church has a spice, dried earth, tobacco, savory character as well as complex notes of plums and ripe black cherries. It's medium-bodied, easygoing on the palate, and while it drops off on the finish, certainly still offers plenty of charm. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years.
Jeff has worked with St. Peter's Church in Cloverdale since 1996. It's one of the best Zin vineyards ever. Planted to the St. Peter's Church Selection of Zinfandel, the 20-100 year old trellised vines are planted on the oldest U.S. vineyard on the site of a church.
