Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2015 Big River Vineyard Zinfandel is wonderfully juicy with black, jammy fruit. Supple texture is the hallmark of this weighty wine.
Vineyard Notes
When Scott and Lynn Adams got married, they organized a celebratory bike ride with friends in the Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. They instantly became interested in wine and began taking wine education classes at the University of California Extension, coming to the conclusion that their favorite varietal was Zinfandel. Around the same time, Scott’s father happened to mention he was in the market for vineyard property, leading Scott to scour Sonoma County for old Zinfandel vines. Most seemed the worse for wear, until he discovered a 13-acre, 100-year-old vineyard straddling the Alexander Valley and Russian River appellations. The Adamses bought the vineyard, named it Big River, and are now staunch members of the local wine community with a winery of their own.
93 Points

From a 13-acre, 100-year-old vineyard straddling the Russian River and the Alexander Valley appellations, this elegant Zin is aged 19 months in French oak barrels. With a ripe cherry nose and a hint of bark, this thrilling red has a juicy nature that shines through. White pepper dots red-fruit tones and the palate weight gives true presence.

Sleek and precise, with elegantly structured cherry, dried sage and pepper flavors that finish with polished tannins. Drink now through 2027.

My favorite of the single vineyards priced the same. Great with steaks and twice cut pork chops and similar foods grilled.
