Description

This rich, medium-bodied “Old Vines” Zinfandel reveals abundant aromas of dark red berries, cherry compote and warm spice. Lingering, bright flavors follow, with notes of boysenberry pie, fresh cranberry and a touch of white pepper. The finish is long, smooth and a little spicy.

The grapes in our Sonoma County “Old Vines” Zinfandel come from vineyards in Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma Valley, Russian River Valley, and Alexander Valley. These head-pruned and dry-farmed vines range in age from 55 to more than 100 years old, producing low yields of fruit with highly concentrated, intense flavors.

 

Wine Enthusiast: 90 Points

For a large-production wine meant to be widely distributed and enjoyed, this brawler hits it out of the park in savory leather and juicy tannin. Just the right dusting of cinnamon appears atop the full-bodied black fruit.

Wine Advocate: 90 Points

I tasted five Zinfandels from St. Francis. The Zinfandel Old Vines, made from 50- to 110-year-old vines, is a gorgeous Zinfandel ?deep ruby purple, with loads of blackberry and black cherry fruit, full-bodied opulence, good purity and richness. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.
