Name Artezin Old Vine 2014
Varietal Zinfandel
Region USA: CA - Mendocinio
Notes "“Wow” is the first word that comes to mind when tasting this superconcentrated and immensely fruity wine. It practically overwhelms the nose and the palate with ripe, jammy boysenberry and blackberry, sprinkled with licorice and black-pepper nuances that add attractive complexity. It's a big wine all the way, but not extreme in alcohol." (Wine Enthusiast)

Additional Notes

"One of the more striking wines in this range, the 2014 Zinfandel Old Vine is absolutely gorgeous. Dark cherry, plum, sweet tobacco, menthol, licorice and spices hit the palate as this flamboyant, juicy Zinfandel shows off its personality. This is one of the best wines I have tasted from winemaker Randle Johnson. Best of all, the Old Vine is a superb value." (Antonio Galloni, Vinous)
