Birichino St. Georges Old Vine Zinfandel 2018
The Zin grapes come from a vineyard planted in 1922 at the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Has the body and acidity quite like a medium bodies Pinot Noir. Bright nose of red fruits and orange citrus with green tea and white pepper. Taste summer raspberries on the vine, dark strawberry, dried ginger and violets. This is super-pretty, great at the dinner table, and not what most expect from an old-vine Zin as its brighter and relatively restrained compared to most.
