Remember when zinfandel was both juicy yet sturdy of spine? Ehren Jordan (mastermind behind Turley zins), winemaker of the Day 2016 Sonoma zinfandel certainly not only remembers but employs deft winemaking to keep this little beast on track. The wine throws a huge punch of cranberries, sage, black tea and blueberry without being jammy while landing softly after an initially gutsy impact. This is what Sonoma zinfandel aspires to be.
Day Zinfandel, Sonoma 2016
Day is the new Zinfandel project of Ehren Jordan, the mastermind behind such amazing labels as Turley, Neyers, and Failla. Intense, inky purple in the glass, deeply floral with heady notes of pink peppercorn on the nose. Vibrantly fresh on the palate, the wine is packed with blackberry, boysenberry and is held taut by a firm graphite structure.
