Stunning nose of red and black fruits, licorice and peach. Full bodied with exquisite acidity. Rich and luscious. Raspberry liqueur, blackberry, boysenberry and white pepper on the palate. The finish is exceptionally long and spicy. Just an excellent Zinfandel from a heritage vineyard that is finally getting the attention it deserves. 94 pts

The cost-efficient way to replant would be to install trellises, today’s standard method. But Reichwage has chosen to kick it old school: He’ll be replanting head-trained vines, spaced 8 feet by 8 feet, mimicking the method of the original 1922 planting.

Absolutely wonderful nose offering aromas of nectarine, strawberry, Rainier cherry and melon. Very accommodating, with fresh flavors of white nectarine, apricot, apple and cantaloupe. A bit of tannin adds texture and the lip-smacking finish shows good tenacity.
