2015 SADDLEBACK “OLD VINE” ZINFANDEL
Practice makes perfect, right? And when you set the bar as the first American winemaker to earn a perfect 100 Point score from Robert Parker with the 1985 Groth Reserve Cab, consumers have lot to be thankful for three decades later. Embarking on his 23rd vintage of Old Vine Zinfandel, Saddleback sources fruit from the historic Frediani Vineyard in Calistoga, planted in 1905 and where top producers like Selene, Relic and T-Vine have also purchased fruit. Immediately appealing with a glorious fragrance of baked raspberries, preserved plums, incense, cracked black pepper and steak tartare, the 2015 Saddleback Old Vine Zin is everything that you would expect from one of Napa Valley’s most distinguished winemakers.
A blend of 90% Zinfandel and 10% Petite Sirah that’s kept for 16 months in American oak barrels, Saddleback is always one of the most re-ordered, beloved and talked about Zinfandels that we feature. The 2015 stands out above the rest with remarkable balance and clarity that can only come from old vines. As in each and every vintage, there’s simply never enough of this old vine Zinfandel to go around, and I strongly recommend securing a case before it runs out…
