2015 GAMBA “STARR ROAD RANCH” ZINFANDEL
Gus Gamba just released his 2015 Starr Road Ranch Zinfandel, and for many of you, that’s all you need to know. Throughout my career I’ve offered some of the best brands out there, but few have developed the kind of love affair that Gamba so clearly has. 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.” The 2015 Starr Road Ranch Zinfandel is hugely appealing, with remarkable balance of intensity and freshness that gives way to waves of briary cherry and raspberry fruit, intermixed with cracked black pepper, spring flowers and Swiss chocolate. With yields down from the previous three consecutive vintages, don’t wait long to secure your case.
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 2015 exhibits all the qualities that I look for in Old Vine Zinfandel…

2015 GAMBA "STARR ROAD RANCH" ZINFANDEL
Winemaker notes: "The deep, dark ruby color hints at the experience yet to come. Notes of dark plum, red cherry, ripe berry and cedar spice jump out of the glass. The flavors are full, round and balanced, offering a medley of cherry, berry and dark chocolate filling the mid-palate, with a silky texture and medium to heavy body that is balanced yet satisfying and mouth filling."
