Gamba Zinfandel, Family Ranches Russian River Valley 2017
Sourced from several small, family owned vineyards in the famed Russian River Valley. The Gamba Family Ranches Zinfandel is a cuvee of old vine blocks, dating as far back as 1900, and select younger vine blocks-all organically grown and dry farmed. “Family Ranches” is our way of paying homage to the early wine grape growing pioneers, and the current hard-working generation of growers, that passionately tend their vines, carefully nurturing and preserving young and old vine vineyards for the enjoyment of future generations. The 2017 Gamba Family Ranches Zinfandel displays a rich dark, inky, deep garnet color in the bowl of the glass. This decadent wine offers a bountiful aromatic nose of ripe dark berries, brown holiday spices, and toasty oak. The wine is big and full-bodied, yet balanced, with mouth-watering flavors that fill the senses. Notes of dark berries, boysenberry and blackberry, blend with leather, black licorice and mild cedar. The framework of this unctuous, full bodied wine is solid, stuffed with satisfying vibrant fruit, with mildly gripping, yet polished tannins, that hint at wonderful potential for cellaring. Enjoy now, or with patience and additional aging, further rewards.
