WA 90 Pts - According to Robert Parker - The outstanding 2012 Zinfandel Saldo comes from selected parcels in Northern California. A blend of 85% Zinfandel and the rest Petite Sirah and Syrah, this classic Zinfandel saw 20% new oak. The wine exhibits lots of peppery spice along with hints of espresso, clove and barrique. Meaty raspberry and black cherry notes as well as a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel are also found in this beauty. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years.
According to Wine Spectator - Ripe cherry and charred oak aromas lead to dense blackberry and smoked peppercorn flavors. Drink now through 2017.
Tasting Notes - The 2012 Saldo has dark ruby color and opens up with bold aromas of black fruit, blueberry pie, juicy plum and hints of mulling spice. The entry is rich and full, with an inviting mid palette that has concentration and density backed by lively acidity. The texture is soft and velvety, with smooth polished tannins that linger harmoniously. The finish is long and persistent with notes of toee, roasted coee beans and a subtle hint of vanilla spice. 85% Zinfandel 9% Petite Sirah 6% Syrah. 15.9% ABV.
