1996 Martinelli "Jackass Vineyard" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

SKU #994442 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Very dark red, with ruby highlights. Sappy aroma of red berries, pomegranate and marijuana, plus hints of stewed fruit and burger. Superripe, deep and dry, with the resiny pungency carrying through in the mouth. Seems a bit top-heavy with alcohol. Finishes with tongue-dusting tannins. Impresses with its sheer size, but I much prefer the balance of the following wine. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/1998)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This wine reveals a murky plum/purple color. Outstanding aromatics soar from the glass, offering aromas of licorice, blackberry liqueur, truffles, underbrush, smoke, and meat. The wine's unctuousness, full body, and supple texture result in a decadently rich, lavishly endowed Zinfandel...(RP) Inner quote mark (12/1998)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A big, potent, high-extract wine that takes time to open up. Once it does, it's packed with chewy, earthy black cherry, mineral, sage and spice, finishing with a strong cedary oak flavor. (JL) Inner quote mark (6/1998)

K&L Notes

Jackass Vineyard was planted in the late 1800s on hilly terrain on the west side of the more famous parcel known as Jackass Hill Vineyard.
