Maryhill Winery 2016 Zinfandel

Appellation: Columbia Valley

Maryhill Winery used this Italian red to help plant its flag on the West Coast wine map when its 2002 Zinfandel won best of class at the West Coast Wine Competition in Sonoma County, and it was the 2002 Proprietor’s Reserve Zinfandel that earned Craig and Vicky Leuthold their first Platinum award back in 2004. And this, a part of their Classic tier, is a bargain year after year. Enticing and expressive, it’s filled with strawberries, spiced plum, sweet tobacco and vanilla bean. The structure is jammy, but not candied, picking up a sense of earthiness and white pepper on the way out. Last summer, the Seattle Wine Awards announced that this Zin earned a double gold medal. It went on to earn a Platinum during the 20th annual Platinum Judging staged by Wine Press Northwest.

Rated “Platinum” by Wine Press Northwest magazine. (15.5% alc.)
