Winemaker’s Notes

Zinfandel
Old & Mature Vines, 2015

Our old vine Zinfandel represents the labor of three generations of the Scherrer family — many of the vines that produced this wine were planted in 1912. It was bottled without fining or filtration to capture the beauty and personality of the Scherrer Vineyard. Although enjoyable in its youth, it should age and develop gracefully for 5 to 10 years after the vintage.

A very nice mixture of red, black and blue fruits is still on the forefront yet anchored/balanced by fresh loam and savory nuances. On the mouth it gently takes over command in a very sneaky way. It is a ‘plushly’ textured middle-weight wine with lots of flavor. Bright, acidity gives just enough of an upward trajectory to the finish. My favorite part is a sense of transparency to the flavors: Nothing too assertive, everything in its place taking turns shining, for a moment. What it may lack in quantity due to the lower crop is made up for in quality and grace.

Vinous – “The 2015 Zinfandel Old & Mature Vines Scherrer Vineyard is a wine of distinction and pedigree. Rich, deep and luscious, with tremendous character, the 2015 hits all the right notes. Most importantly, the Old & Mature Vines avoids some of the more rustic notes found in the other Zinfandels, while the expression of fruit is beautifully overt. This is very nicely done.” (93+ Pts)
