Zinfandel, ‘Fredricks Vyd’, Turley

Hailing from 1937, these certified organic vines are some of the most unique we’ve ever seen. Just a mile and a half from the Napa border on the Sonoma side of the Mayacamas, the vines are planted along steep, contoured terraces. Finding old vineyards is rare enough, but ancient hillside head-trained vines located 900 feet up? Downright extraordinary.

Review:
The 2015 Zinfandel Fredericks Vineyard is one of the more nervous, tightly wound wines in the range, largely a reflection of the site's location at 1,000 feet on the Sonoma site of Mt. Veeder. Iron, savory herbs, chalk, white pepper and dried flowers are some of the signatures. This is a rare 2015 that is likely to require at least some cellaring.
