2016 Beekeeper "Montecillo Vineyard" Sonoma County Zinfandel

SKU #1483679 97 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Zinfandel is rarely the recipient of the kind of swollen prose and lofty scores that are routinely thrown Cabernet Sauvignon's way, but we suspect that even the fussiest collector of trophy wines will rethink their opinion of the variety when met with an example as deep and wonderfully well-crafted as the latest Beekeeper is. While very rich and long on exceptionally pure varietal fruit, the wine is already showing uncommon finesse and tailoring, and it is destined to age famously and grow ever more involving over the course of the next five to ten years. It is most definitely a "keeper" and deserves a place in the cellar of every serious Zinfandel devotee. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

Outer quote mark The 2016 Zinfandel Montecillo Vineyard (there’s 5% Petite Sirah) is a classy, medium to full-bodied, elegant Zinfandel that has lots of classic blue fruits, cedar, and white pepper aromas and flavors. Aged 15 months in 25% new French oak, it has a great texture, terrific overall balance, and is a sensational Zinfandel from this great vintage. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

Outer quote mark Blended with 5% Petite Sirah and then aged 15 months in all French oak, this is a beautifully made and fun wine to drink, earthy in forest mushroom and grilled meat. The vineyard sits at 1,500 feet in elevation and contributes sizable tannin weight, a worthy companion to the ripe richness of the blueberry cobbler and black pepper at its core. *Editors' Choice* (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2019)
