"The vineyard-designated zinfandels from Joseph Swan are often closed when young, only revealing their subtle nuances and vineyard characteristics with a little bottle age. This 2000 zinfandel from the Russian River's Lone Redwood Ranch is a perfect example— it's just starting to shine now. Aromas of minced meat pie, brambly spice and plum fade into a palate that bursts wih layers of apricot, plum, cinnamon and clove flavors. Balanced and imminently drinkable, we recommend trying this wine with grilled meats like pork or lamb at your next dinner party. According to Wine Spectator: "Focused and lively, a robust style with intense plum, dried wild berry, fresh ground pepper, mustard seed and cherry flavors that blend into harmonious toasty oak and ripe structure, finishing with dry tannins."
