The Heritage Red from Bedrock Vineyard is from a Zinfandel-based blend composed of 22 inter-planted varieties planted in the 1880s in Red Hill clay-loam soils, using no-till cover crop farming, and native yeast fermentation. Zinfandel really shines from these old, gnarled vines. The concentration of flavor that you get from the very low yields adds richness to the wines without having to pick them late and overripe. The nose shows a mix of violet, minty eucalyptus, and ripe, but not syrupy, purple plum. The palate shows additional complexity with a touch of cocoa powder, black tea, and black cherry. Rich and comforting, this will be excellent in the colder months! Michelle DeWyngaert
From the famed certified biodynamic Montazi Vineyard in the McMinnville AVA. Purportedly one of the more high octane releases from Day Wines in 2016, the Montazi does display some power, but also offers plenty of energy and cut. The robe is a darker ruby. The nose is a bit reserved on opening, revealing pretty red fruit, wood smoke, and spice aromas with time open. The palate is concentrated and ripe with red raspberry, plum skin, and pomegranate fruit framed by bosky underbrush notes and a hint of oak. The richness is dominant at first, but a bit of air brings the earthy undercurrent and savory herbal notes to the fore lending a sapid note to frame the ripe fruit. This is admittedly quite young, but is already showing nascent complexity and verve. Certainly drinkable now with a good amount of air, but certainly will be better in 5-7 years. Really spot on with red miso, garlic, and ginger-marinated hanger steak with greens and cranberry beans, but I think this has the stuffing for richer dishes or braises. And while no one will mistake this for a Fuées or Clos des Ducs, this has the concentrated, small berry, intensity that positively shouts Momtazi. Fun stuff and well worth a look for the patient.

I am really enamored with this single-block bottling from Kelley Fox! The Maresh vineyard was planted in 1970 and is prized for its biodiversity; home to several kinds of fruit trees, an array of wildlife, and an abundance of cover crops. The Royal Ann block runs along a row of 100 year-old Royal Ann cherry trees and borders the Star of Bethlehem Flower block. Fermented ~50% whole cluster, and then aged in neutral French oak for about a year. This wine seems to defy physics by being both rich and opulent and also crystalline and vibrant. It has a beautiful floral quality on the nose, with notes of pomegranate and white cherries, intertwined with fresh rosemary and crushed rock. The palate is a bit riper with silky texture and notes of bitter-sweet amaro on the finish. This is a definitely a bottle to cellar, but pretty captivating already. Michelle DeWyngaert
