2009 Puccini Vineyard Zinfandel
Zinfandel •Puccini Vineyard
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Valley
Oh, how we love wines made by our friend, David Noyes. Once of the first winemakers we ever sat down with, nearly seven years ago, David has always delighted us with tales of the trade - and fantastic single vineyard wines.
Today’s 2009 David Noyes Puccini Vineyard Zinfandel hails from the famous Puccini Vineyard. This tiny 1-acre vineyard, which produces some of the most sought-after and fought-over fruit in the Sonoma Valley, has been lovingly farmed by two generations of the Puccini family. The vines, which are more than 100 years old, continue to produce wines of power and prestige.
Today’s 2009 is a sophisticated, structured and elegant Zinfandel that we offer with our heartiest recommendation. If you love Zinfandel. you will absolutely adore this wine. And, at under $20, you should probably stock up.
Dark crimson hues with perfect clarity through the slightly darker core of the wine.
RIch and layered with lush aromas of black cherry, blackberry, cassis, dried black rose petal, rhubarb, alpine strawberry and toasty cedar.
Dark and rich with concentrated flavors of dark berry compote, briar patch, cassis, black cherry and sweet tobacco leaf.
Ultra long and chewy with plush, crushed velvet tannins that spread a chewy, elegant dryness to the far corners of the palate.
Enjoy this wine with a fresh pineapple pizza, a tangy grilled BBQ chicken, or a variety platter of fine Italian Salumi.
