Ehren Jordan’s Zinfandel project is all about great sites, old vines, and hands-off winemaking that lets the vintage and the varietal do the heavy lifting. Jordan established his reputation as a vigneron at Turley, and Day is his triumphant return to those roots. Loads of plums framed in cedar and spice build a full-bodied charmer of a Zinfandel that will shine bright for another decade still.
From the team at Failla, the 2017 Zinfandel looks to be one heck of a base appellation blend, offering loads of plums, black raspberries, spice, and classic cedar notes. This medium to full-bodied, rounded, charming barrel sample is going to drink nicely right out of the gate yet keep for a decade.
