2010 Martinelli Jackass Hill Zinfandel | Russian River Valley California 750ml


96 points Josh Raynolds for Tanzer

Bouquet of licorice, blackberry, and plum, comes through on this wine, with beautifully balanced flavors of red raspberry, black plum, marmalade, with a flinty backbone. 45 cases produced. | Bryan Kvamme for Martinelli

Opaque purple. A hypnotic bouquet evokes black and blue fruit preserves, incense, licorice and violet, with smoky Indian spice and mineral nuances and a hint of cola. Completely stains the palate with intense blackberry, cherry and plum flavors, with peppery spice and floral pastille notes taking flight on the back end. Lush, seamless, deep zinfandel with superb finishing energy and floral persistence. These head-pruned vines, which sit on a 60-degree slope(!), were planted in 1887. | Josh Raynolds for Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, 96 points

In a difficult vintage, a meticulous level of attention was applied to getting this wine to the level of quality carried by the historic and renowned Jackass Hill vineyard site. Sorting down to single berries of clusters still hanging on the vine on this unforgiving slope was followed by additional hand-sorts after harvest. Not a single precious berry could be missed for the 45 cases produced. |Falling Bright
