2019 Carlisle Piner-Olivet Vineyard Zinfandel Sonoma County California USA
Medium to medium-dark ruby-red. A perfumed nose of red cherry, briar, and brown tobacco leaf. Classic Zinfandel! Medium-full to full-bodied on the palate, flavors of cherry, red currant, and peppery spice build through the long and softly tannic finish
Rated 94 Points Jeb Dunnuck
The base 2019 Zinfandel Sonoma County is terrific, with beautiful purity and elegance as well as ample Zinfandel charm and spice. Medium-bodied, soft, and supple, with lots of plum and red berry fruits and spicy, cedar, and subtle cigar wrapper nuances, it's well worth a case purchase and is ideal for drinking over the coming 5-7 years.
Rated 93 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium ruby-purple, the 2019 Zinfandel Sonoma County offers plush red and blue fruit on the nose, with loads of floral perfume. Medium-bodied, the palate explodes with intense, perfumed fruits and a grainy, fresh frame. The long finish is loaded with bright, spicy accents. This Sonoma County Zinfandel overperforms for the price this vintage.

Brimming with plump and multilayered berry patch, licorice and smoked pepper flavors, this wine captures the essence of Sonoma County Zin.
