Zinfandel is the quintessential American Red Wine! Bold, spicy, and intense, when Zinfandel is at its best there are few Reds that can match the kind of interest it delivers in the glass. The Deaver Vineyard was planted in 1881 and stands as an enduring testament to the pioneering spirits of the farmers who believed in the American Dream. Terra d’Oro’s 93 Point 2017 Deaver Vineyard Zinfandel is more proof that those folks were right! The nose is remarkably perfumed with rose petals, warm pralines, and cola reduction glaze intertwined like the colors in the sunsets over the foothills, each distinct yet still contiguous. The palate is completely alive with bursting red berry fruit ranging from sweet wild raspberries to tart red currants on the entry. Fiery spice is the hallmark of great Zinfandel and it is on full display in this textbook example with waves of cinnamon and cracked pepper crashing into the shore with each passing sip. The finish displays a real sense of tension and interest as the interplay of perfectly ripe fruit, incisive acidity, and fine grained tannin tells a story that is as captivating as you’ll find. Today the wine is brash and young so pairing it with similarly full flavored fare is the right choice. But this glorious interpretation of the 135th vintage from the Deaver Vineyard is sure to age gracefully for a minimum of 10 years becoming more seductive and harmonious with each passing day.
Food Pairing:A bottle of ancient vine Zin and a rack slowly smoked of baby back ribs sounds like heaven on earth to me! Give me a big ole slice of cornbread out of the black iron skillet and some nice tender collards topped with bacon and balsamic for a Memorial Day meal that will satisfy in ways that don’t translate into words.
