Russian River Valley - 95% Zinfandel, 5% Petit Syrah

The first thing you notice about the 2014 Jackson James Zinfandel is the color. Almost opaque at the center, the wine exhibits a saturated robe almost to the meniscus.  For the uninitiated, the wine is really dark right up to the edge.

The nose reminds me of mulberry jam slathered on buttermilk biscuits.(Throw in a little plum preserves and just a hint of vanilla and we have a winner.) This wine is ready to taste.

Zinfandel should sing on the palate. Not a heavy, tannic wine, it should have verve and vivacity on the tongue; fruit and acid doing a two-step and keeping time with a light hearted touch.  The Jackson James Zin does just that. This is a vibrant wine wanting to be paired with a range of items--a backstrap of venison with a huckleberry glaze or your grandmother's meat loaf with a rich tomato/marinara sauce. The list goes on and on... This is a versatile partner for many different cuisines.  The fruit and acid balance allows it to shine with both complicated and/or simple fare. Zinfandel, when made properly, can be one of the, if not the most, versatile food wines on the planet. The Blanchard Family Jackson James 2014 Zinfandel is one of those wines.
