Napa Estate, Eastern Exposures Zinfandel 2009$49.00 -- 96 points - Connoisseurs' Guide
This special cuvee is presented to show just how elegant, fragrant and balanced Napa hillside Zinfandels can be. It is a step beyond vineyard designation, and represents style as much as place. Most of the grapes come from the heart of our east facing vineyards; it is the balance and finesse of east facing vineyards that give the wine its name. The selection criteria emphasize aroma, middle-palate and finish - berries with hints of flowers, minerals and spice in the aroma; multi-layered and rich flavor on the broad and supple middle palate; and an intense, clean and lingering impression on the finish. A touch of Viognier is added to enhance the intriguingly exotic and sensual quality of this very special wine.
"When at their best, this estate's wines are among the most carefully crafted Zins to be had, and this nicely tailored example makes just that point. It is keenly focused on ripe-berry fruit with complementary highlights of sweet oak, briar, coffee and loam, and its combination of substance and structure only furthers the sense that studied winemaking is at work here. Its firm finishing tannins provide just the right grip to make us true believers in its future." 96 points - Connoisseurs' Guide
