Successive Success

We’ve had the great pleasure to have featured a few successive vintages of today’s wine. Always, we have been delighted, impressed and even intrigued. The wonderful Ricci Vineyard is a revered Zin vineyard that, under the coaxing and care of Mayo, produces Zinfandels of real depth and character.

Today’s 2009 Mayo Family Winery Ricci Vineyard Zinfandel is a delicious and very juicy wine that we just love. Made from some of the oldest vines in the Russian River Valley, this distinctive wine will delight any fan of big, bold, fruit-driven Zins.

We have featured Mayo for more than six years, now. They continue to be among our favorite boutique producers. Today’s very highly recommended wine tells you why!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Pretty, luminescent ruby red, with very pretty glinting edges.

Smell:

Ripe, lush and spicy with concentrated cherry, blackberry, raspberry, dried fall leaves, dark toasted oak and black pepper.

Taste:

Very juicy with ample black cherry, blackberry and dried cherry balanced against cedar, toasty oak, dried cranberry,

Finish:

Lingering acidity carries the fruit for a long time, with juicy dark fruit that tails off first at the mid-palate but lingers on at the edges.

Pairing:

Enjoy this juicy Zin with almost anything on the BBQ. A sweet and tangy BBQ chicken dish would be just perfect.
