Winemaker's Notes

De Loach Vineyards Saitone Ranch Zinfandel is full of ripe black fruit from our oldest vines. The wine is bright and crisp with cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors, accented by a perfect balance of smoke and spice. This jammy Zinfandel is layered and full in the mouth, with a long spicy finish. While delicious now, this wine will age well for those with the patience to cellar it.

"Italian in style, this smells like a Barolo, then breaks out into a California dream that may make you heartsick for the Sonoma coastline. Like several of its siblings from De Loach, this cool zin has captured the Russian River Valley in a bottle. It's coastal scrub and moss, low-bush blueberry with tannins carved out of stone. The black spice, anise and dried fig complexities that come up with air give a Porty edge, but the wine remains completely frresh, lifiting all those flavors into a zesty, zinny, purely delicious finish. This is what California does best. Grab it if you can; enough people understand to make this kind of site-expressive zin hard to get, but evidently not enough to drive up the price."
