The 2019 Zinfandel Old Hill Ranch from one of the very best sites in Sonoma Valley is another highly attractive wine in this range. Sweet perfumed floral notes lift a core of red berry fruit with hints of spice and earthiness that develop with a bit of time in the glass. In this range it stands out for its striking texture and balance. Joel Peterson?s blocks at Old Hill contain a good bit of Grenache planted in the late 1880s which no doubt contributes to the wine bright red fruit and floral profile. In any discussion of California wine Old Hill is quite simply one of the most pedigreed sites in the entire state. It is a truly special place in every way. (Drink between 2024-2039)v
