Hawley 2005 Old Vine Gaddis Vineyard Zinfandel (Russian River Valley)

Editors' Choice

They say the vines are 85 years old, and I can believe it, because these authentically old Zin vines are intense. It's not just intensity of cherry-berry fruit, but of substances that seem to exist deep in the soil, like stones and minerals and organic matter and decomposing volcanic litter and old compounds washed down from the mountains over time. I like this dry, tannic, complex Zinfandel a lot.
