Tom Mackey Zinfandel 2014, Montecillo Vineyard
Tom Mackey was the winemaker at St Francis Vineyards for 30 years and in 2014, has gone out on his own! The 2014 Zinfandel is from the Montecillo Vineyard, an old vine head-trained vineyard located high above the Sonoma Valley on the western flanks of the Mayacamas Mountains. Deep red color, with a brambly black fruit and French Oak nose redolent of a mountain zinfandel. On the palate, bright red raspberry fruit with subtle oak and a well balanced acid finish. This is a sterling example of an old vine mountain zinfandel.
