2013 Macauley 'Old Vine' Zinfandel, Napa Valley

 

Zinfandel has always been an important wine in the Macauley portfolio and the 2013 sets the bar high. This wine begins boldly with a nose of sweet cherry cola, dried strawberry, Cavendish tobaco, oak derivations of coconut cream and subtle hints of light cigar wrapper.   The palate begins a little slowly for such a large wine, but I say that in a good way, as the plush beginning of this wine moves in easily yet builds to great strength in the middle and its tannins and backbone stretch out for nearly a minute.  The richness in the buildup moves along to the sensation of chewy cherry with great depth of flavor and volume. The upside aging potential of 10 to 14 years is very achievable if cellared correctly. -Kirk Venge

 

 

 

2012 Macauley Petite Sirah, Napa Valley

 

2011 Cabernet Franc, Beckstoffer To Kalon Image

This wine is exactly why we love Petite Sirah. The Macauley Petite stands with a rich deep color, broad volume, structured tannins and perfectly toned muscle in the back palate.  This wine is singing!   Black in color and rich in fruit, aromatics of cedar, toasted bread and dried cherry rise from the glass first.   It is such an exotic wine to look at, one can hardly wait to taste it.   The palate melded very nicely with an extra year of aging prior to release.   Purple fruit flavors dance on the tongue.    The density is indeed rich with a poignant, yet focused middle.  The powerful and blocky tannic structure, so familiar to Petite Sirah, lends to the lasting finish of this boastful red.   Cellared correctly, I believe this Petite Sirah will drink well to 2030 and beyond.  -Kirk Venge
