Garnet cherry red with black fruit, briary notes, black cherry, fennel and cinnamon stick with freshly crushed red pepper corns. This wine will take you to the edge of over-the-top richness on the palate, but never becomes heavy. Just a floor show of black and blue fruits with wild raspberry that weaves in and out and a touch of warm brioche and pain au chocolate.
St Peter's Church Vineyeard is home to 20 100-year-old plus, trellised vines that were originally planted in the late 1800's. Truly one of my favorite zinfandels of 2018 from one of the greatest Zin vineyards ever.
First impressions are so important. During my interview with Kent Rosenblum of Rosenblum Cellars, we spent about 3 hours tasting through barrels. One of the Zinfandels that really was the highlight of that tasting was the old vine Zinfandel of St. Peter's Church. I really think this was one of the reasons I took the job to work with Kent.
I have been making Zinfandel from this vineyard since 1996. It’s a simple vineyard, on a simple piece of land, but it produces some of the most magical wines. Once again, this is a property that was farmed by Ulises Valdez. My friend truly had the Midas touch.
