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.
Saitone Vineyard Zinfandel Reviews
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.
