Another new offering, the 2015 Zinfandel Whitney Tennessee is laced with the essence of cherry pit, crushed rocks, savory herbs, licorice and dried flowers. This is an especially savory/mineral-driven style, which is not surprising given the high percentage of rocks in the vineyard. Bright rose petal, mint and cinnamon, along with beams of supporting tannin, are among the signatures. Whitney Tennessee is a pre-Prohibition site in the Alexander Valley. Since 2009, fruit from this site went into the Old Vines Zinfandel. This is certainly a promising debut for the vineyard designate. (Antonio Galloni)
Wine Tasting Notes
Planted in 1885, Ueberroth is the oldest of our Zinfandel vineyards. Located closer to the sea than any other site we work with, you can smell the salt air from the top of the hill. These ungrafted, head-trained vines are planted on very steep limestone slopes. The high pH of the soil makes for a very high acid wine, elevating the ripe fruit flavors from this historic certified organic vineyard.
