Once and Future Oakley Road Vineyard Zinfandel 2019

Red Wine from USA - California
We have once again agreed a great price on this wine which gives a great introduction to Joel Peterson's famously "no wimpy wine" style. This Californian zinfandel is from vines planted on sandy soils in the 1880s, leading to a characterful wine of spiced blackberry, mocha and intense red fruit that is best decanted.

California Vintage 2019

2019 was, notwithstanding some terrible fires, a very good one.A long warm summer made up for wet weather in the spring and the growing season was long. Harvesting was carried out without the necessity to rush anything, and most fruit was safely gathered in when wildfires broke out late in October. Some wineries were devastated by the flames but most came away unscathed and with little smoke taint affecting the wines. White varieties show excellent potential, as does pinot noir, but most reds show very well in a very good vintage.
