Valravn 2022 Old Vine Zinfandel, Sonoma County
This is the brainchild of three bad-ass industry veterans that wanted to make the best damn Zinfandel for the most affordable price, and they deliver in spades! Fruit is sourced from select heritage vines (50-120 years old!) and the resulting wine is really juicy and concentrated; black and blue berries just bursting from the glass. Bright acidity keeps this full- bodied beauty from being too heavy. Dark chocolate and the slightest hint of black peppercorn mingle with the ripe berries through the long finish. This Zin shows some serious pedigree!
