Grgich Hills Estate
2009 Napa Valley Zinfandel
California: Napa Valley
Made in Nature
Today marks the 4th successive vintage that we have had the distinct pleasure to showcase this excellent wine. We went absolutely wild about the 2008 and 2007 vintages, but today’s 2009 Grgich Hills Estate Napa Valley Zinfandel delivers an extra wallop of flavor and refinement.
Worth every penny, this Zin is very highly recommended. Delicious and dark, with concentrated fruit and dark spice, this wine is everything that a Zinfandel should be. With black fruit, earth and spice that exist in elegant even proportion, this wine shows beautiful balance.
Amazingly delicious, we put the full weight of our recommendation behind this wonderful, balanced and very flavorful wine.
Deep, dark, and foreboding, this wine shows dark maroon hues from core to glinting edge.
Heady and full with deep black fruit that is supported by dark French oak. Aromas of dark blackberry, cassis, black cherry and brown sugar lead the way. Allow the wine to breathe, and violets, dusty dried mushroom, soft spice and black pepper emerge.
Concentrated and delicious with flavors of darkest black cherry, blackberry and black currant. Earthy leather, dried leaves, black pepper, espresso bean and baker’s chocolate emerge after a little swirling.
Smooth and elegant, with a classic Napa Valley Zinfandel finish that lasts forever.
This classic Zinfandel begs to be paired with a juicy peppercorn-crusted New York strip steak.
