2011 Martinelli "Jackass Vineyard" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1126090 93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2011 Zinfandel Jackass Vineyard is about as profound as a Zinfandel can be, even in a vintage such as 2011. A deep plum/garnet color is followed by a fragrant burst of red and black fruits, licorice, fruitcake and spice. It possesses enormous body (astonishing for a 2011) as well as a pure, deep, velvety style. The high octane alcohol (16.5%) will ensure a certain longevity, but the wine is not the least bit hot or out of balance. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

93 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Glass-staining ruby. An intensely perfumed nose evokes candied dark berries and incense, with zesty mineral and star anise nuances adding complexity. Pliant blackberry and cherry flavors are impressively fresh, becoming deeper and spicier with air. A big but nicely balanced and gently tannic zin that finishes with outstanding clarity and length. Inner quote mark (5/2013)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Martinelli's 2011 Zinfandel Jackass Vineyard boasts striking inner perfume, sweetness and pure texture. This is another super-intense wine. Dark plums, sweet tobacco, mint, wild flowers and savory herbs are all deeply expressive in the glass. The 2011 Jackass is built on pure intensity and power. All of the elements are very much up-front in this full-throttle Zinfandel. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2014)
