The Immortal Zin

The Immortal Zin
What Possessed Us To Open Wine?
I slaved all day in the kitchen making food to bribe friends to come over to talk to me. With these friends we always talk about immortality in one way or another. Therefore, The Immortal Zin seemed completely appropriate!
What Did The Label Want Us To Know?
Right on the front it says: Old Vine. In the descriptive part on the back of the label the first word they use is: Gnarly! They use it to describe the old vines, over 100 years old. Thus the name “Immortal.”
The vineyards where these vines live are the Peirano Estate Vineyards and these very vines have seen 6 generations of Peiranos! They are to be found in Lodi.
Descriptive words: intense, mature, elegant fruit. They playfully ask if you have committed “The Immortal Zin” yet. This is pertinent to our conversation!
What’s So Great About It?
Not sure what it is but suddenly I am wanting to drink a lot of Zinfandel. There is something about it that smells so good, the way Pinot Noir does, but it’s different. More peppery and something else I am not sure of. Whatever, it’s my new favorite. The Immortal Zin was very good, kind of jammy, medium bodied. We keep trying to pick out the smell we like. Is it blackberries? Is it currant? This was a very enjoyable wine.
Someone Else’s More Qualified Opinion:
