Branham Estate Zinfandel ’13 Rockpile Sonoma
The Zinfandel that comes off this high elevation, rocky vineyard could be the best Zinfandel in Sonoma Co. Gary has quite a following for his fruit and sells to some of the best wineries but he holds back the best blocks for himself. Black raspberry, blackberry bramble, black cherry, huckleberry, saddle leather, baking spice, tobacco, black pepper, and cola dominate the flavors. Long, lush, and rich finish lingers on the palate. Bright not jammy.
Branham Estate “Jazz” Red Blend ’13 Napa Valley
This fruit bomb is checking in at nearly 15% alcohol and is composed of 40% Zinfandel, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petite Sirah, and 20% Syrah. Flavors of super ripe plums, blackberry, black cherry, roasted coffee, dark chocolate, wild sage, and mineral. Long, extracted finish.
Branham Petite Sirah ’14 Rockpile Sonoma
The best Petite I have tasted, vintage after vintage. Huge wine, so dark in the glass you would think it was ink. Flavors of blueberry, blackberry, black currant, roasted game, slate, bittersweet chocolate, white pepper, espresso bean, and vanilla. Tame tannins. Only 90 cases produced.
