Yearning for the Zinfandels of the '70s
01/05/2010
by Hillstrom11793154
A wine like this makes no sense to me. Why would anyone take gnarly 108 year old vines and make an elegant, polite wine that imitates Pinot Noir? The Dutton-Goldfield is not a bad wine.

It makes me yearn for those bawdy impolite zins of the 70's.

Zinfandel is not the rage it was in the 1980s and early 1990s, as there are now too many wines made from overripe fruit or from young vines, or overwhelmed by excessive use of new barrels. Today's Zin styles range from elegant, taut, and claret-like midweights to superripe and potty behemoths, with off-the-charts...
