2003 Vineyard 29 "Aida" Napa Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1211981 90 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2003 Zinfandel Aida (95% Zinfandel and 5% Petite Sirah aged 25 months in primarily American oak casks) reveals sweet vanillin notes intermixed with pepper, earth, and a Châteauneuf du Pape-like, Provencal herb, garrigue characteristic. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2005)

90 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good ruby-red. Plum, currant and smoke on the nose; rather claret-like for zinfandel. Sweet, lush and soft, with a plummy flavor complemented by mellow nutty oak. Nicely integrated acids and fine-grained tannins will not get in the way of enjoying this right now. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2006)

Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark There is no question but that this hefty, very full-bodied wine pushes the limits of ripeness, but it reveals solid, blackberry fruit beneath its heavy veneer of chocolate and very rich oak. It is an inelegant wine, but one of great substance, and its late-harvest swagger raises all of the usual cautions against indiscriminate pairing with foods. *One Star* Inner quote mark (1/2007)
