LOVE THAT RED Winery 2016 Zinyatta Zinfandel, Columbia Valley, $36

By on July 9, 2019

Terry Wells pays an in-direct homage to historic filly Zenyatta with this small-lot expression of Zinfandel. It involves acclaimed sites in two states to create bright and tangy approach that includes a sense of Syrah’s plumminess and saddle leather. StoneTree Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope in Washington and Stoney Vine Vineyard in The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater in Oregon combine for a theme of dried strawberry and cherry candy thats backed by blood orange acidity and a finish of Fee Brothers Cherry Bitters. Wells’s wine club raced through this very limited production.
