2011 Martinelli Jackass Vineyard Zinfandel | Russian River Valley Sonoma California 750ml


...aromas of blueberry and black cherry, with hints of tropical fruit and cocoa. The wine is firm and well balanced with a long finish including flavors of blackberry jam, nectarines, and Italian plums. 223 cases produced. | Martinelli Winery

Glass-staining ruby. An intensely perfumed nose evokes candied dark berries and incense, with zesty mineral and star anise nuances adding complexity. Pliant blackberry and cherry flavors are impressively fresh, becoming deeper and spicier with air. A big but nicely balanced and gently tannic zin that finishes with outstanding clarity and length. | Josh Raynolds for Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, 93 points

...about as profound as a Zinfandel can be, even in a vintage such as 2011. A deep plum/garnet color is followed by a fragrant burst of red and black fruits, licorice, fruitcake and spice. It possesses enormous body (astonishing for a 2011) as well as a pure, deep, velvet style. The high octane alcohol (16.5%) will ensure a certain longevity, but the wine is not the least bit hot or out of balance. | Robert M. Parker Jr. for Wine Advocate, 93 points

...boasts a striking inner perfume, sweetness and pure texture. This is another super-intense wine. Dark plums, sweet tobacco, mint, wild flowers and savory herbs are all deeply expressive in the glass. The 2011 Jackass is built on pure intensity and power. All of the elements are very much up-front in this full-throttle Zinfandel. | Antonio Galloni for Vinous, 91 points
