Tasting Notes

The 2014 Big River Vineyard Zinfandel is wonderfully juicy with black, jammy fruit. Supple texture is the hallmark of this weighty wine. 100% Zinfandel

Vineyard Notes

When Scott and Lynn Adams got married, they organized a celebratory bike ride with friends in 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.

92 Points

Smooth and deep with spice and dense berry fruit; toasty, rich and balanced; long and layered.

91 Points

Big, bold, balanced and juicy with notes of cherry, mulberry, sausage, sun dried tomato, red licorice and cocoa.

Planet Grape, April 8, 2018
90 Points

From vines planted around 1893 on a high bench on the south-eastern edge of the appellation, this 100% varietal wine shows plenty of power and concentration, teasing bold cherry, cinnamon and pepper out of its substantial core.
