Once + Future Sonoma Zinfandel


A very active player in the preservation of heritage vines, Peterson turns here to a century-old site in Sonoma for an aromatic, Zinfandel-based field blend that is both rich and fairly refined. It is a fleshy, full-bodied wine that steps back from extreme ripeness and takes a slightly tighter stance following its momentarily supple beginnings, and, although never wanting for fruity depth, it is, at this point, still somewhat nascent and waiting to bloom. Age is an absolute must here, and it should be left alone for no fewer than four or five years, but we would not be in the least surprised to see it evolve favorably for a decade or more.
