4 stars "This is our favorite vintage yet for this longtime Locals darling. 65-year-old vines, located in northern Santa Rosa on River Road, ably defend themselves against the encroachment of suburbia by producing stellar wine grapes. Soft and deftly balanced, this medium-bod-ied, dry Italian-style Zinfandel offers delightfully lush, intense forward cherry fruit up front. Next, flavors of cedar and fresh tobacco ride smoothly across the palate, building slowly and finishing with a subtle spiciness and this wine’s characteristic slight smokiness. A delectable Umami, a Japanese word I am using to describe the mouth-watering, savory quality of this wine, is apparent from the start, expanding broadly as the wine fills the palate. Its lighter mouthfeel is deceiv-ing, as the flavors are very full-bodied, with moderate alcohol also making it very food friendly. Goat or Stil-ton cheese, or perhaps leg of lamb served with roasted summer squash and baked potato, would be excellent companions to this bottle."
