Saitone Vineyard Zinfandel Reviews

Score: 91 | April 27, 2018 | Wine Advocate

The 2015 Zinfandel Saitone Ranch is medium garnet-purple colored and boldly scented of raspberry preserves, spice cake and prunes with suggestions of Indian spices, dusty soil and tobacco. Full-bodied, packed with spicy dried berry flavors and supported with chewy tannins, it has a crisp line of acid nicely lifting the pruney notions on the finish. 

Score: 91 | August 31, 2017 | Wine Spectator

Zesty and well-built, with black cherry and smoky bay leaf aromas and ripe, jammy blackberry and licorice flavors. Drink now through 2024.

Lean and crisp, with notes of cherry and tart plum and accents of underbrush, pepper and anise. -TF

Editors' Choice

Saitone is a supremely historic vineyard, planted originally in 1895 in the thick of the Russian River Valley’s Olivet Bench, a coveted spot these days for Pinot Noir. The wine offers supple, soft tannins around a juicy intensity of grenadine and berry crumble. The structured backbone of minerality is remarkable.
