Fallon Place Landa Vineyard Chalk Hill Zinfandel 2014, Sonoma County California 

My Rating 92 Points.   

Price $32.



Dark inky in color with a short purple rim.

Very pronounced and fruity nose of blackberries, blackcurrants, sweet cherries, alcohol, wood, licorice, tobacco leaf, cloves, vanilla, cola, light green vegetables, earth, eucalyptus, smoke, spices and black pepper.

Full-bodied, bold, rich and jammy, with medium plus acidity and long long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, raspberry jam, raisins, dried figs, smoke, spices, bitter herbs, licorice, chocolates, mocha, dark coffee and peppercorn.

Long finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a wonderful Zinfandel from Russian River Valley in California. Balanced and enjoyable by itself, with a great mouthfeel. Spicy with nice complexity. The tangy ending makes it interesting. Showing a very generous nose, that is very enjoyable just to sniff on.

Drinking very nicely now, similar to the Caymus style of wine.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (60 minutes.)

A good food wine too, that would pair nicely with burgers. I paired it with good music all by itself.

Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. A very small production of only 55 cases.

This Single Vineyard Zinfandel is delicious
14.5% alcohol by volume.
