Dear Wine Lover,

I couldn't say this better myself. Here is an excerpt from the Sonoma County Winegrape Commission website:

"Old Vine Zinfandel is a Sonoma County treasure. The slants and slopes of angled mountainsides--where artistically twisted, arthritic-looking, gnarly vines were planted by pioneers fifty, eighty, and even more than 100 years ago--are now home to vines that stingily offer up fruit that is transmogrified into wines that are concentrated, intense, and identifiable."

And guess what I have here for $5.99? Old Vine Zinfandel from Sonoma County, and it is incredible how accurate the definition is for this Mateo 2007 Zinfandel.

Funny thing is, the winery rep that brought this wine almost forgot to taste me on it...as he was leaving I said, "What about that wine?" "Oh, yeah, I guess so," he replied. When I raised the glass to my nose, I knew instantly that they were old vines and then when the taste confirmed the bouquet, I asked for every drop he had. His face was in total shock...because he almost missed the sale.
