Mike and Kendall Officer built this winery from the ground up, making wine for years in their garage, before Carlisle. They make meticulously crafted single vineyard old vine Zinfandel from special sites throughout the valley. The Montafi Ranch sits up high on the east bench of the valley and was originally planted in 1926. Very dark garnet-ruby.  Blackberries, blackberries, and more blackberries are highlighted by a suggestion of bay laurel and eucalyptus.  Full-bodied with flavors of blackberries (no surprise there!), licorice all sorts, and cocoa powder that linger in the long, fruit-filled finish.  A wine that really builds with air while in the glass   Enjoy this impressively concentrated, old-vine beauty pretty much anytime but it should be best between 2022 and 2028.
