I have always enjoyed Peter Haywood’s wines. He is the only Zinfandel winemaker I know that does selective bunch selection during harvest. This means he has to go through and do multiple harvests on the same vineyard. This creates a more even ripness with each fermentation. I’m in.

Right there with you Scott. Well crafted, not over the top. great terroir.


#5

I share your opinion on his Zins and I also like his Primitvo. I was wondering if you had tried the Cab Franc? I’m looking forward to trying it but would love to hear your opinion if you have one.


#6

BTW…I am digging the makeup for the offering! Being able to go after a single bottle x4 or a mixed bag is pretty cool!

I, too, am curious about more info on the Cab Franc.

The mixed 4 pack on the sale has Los Chamizal Zin instead of the Cab Franc you list. I assume the sale event is correct?


#9

That’s a compelling recommendation.

That said, still looking for some thoughts/insight on his Cab Franc…Anyone???


#10

Fixed


#11

I notice that the 2007 vintage Cab Franc had a huge 16.2% alcohol content while this 2008 vintage on the sale event is a more subtle 14% with a much higher residual sugar level.

Any chance Peter will chime in to compare the two vintages?


#12

I’d be digging (and buying) the mixed bag if the Cab Franc was included.


#13

Agreed! Of course…if we got some feedback on the Cab Franc I might be a set of that plus the mixed zins…


#14

Discount wine. Sigh.


#15

I hate to say ditto but, these are my exact thoughts.


#16

I haven’t tried the Cab Franc. Knowing Peter’s other wines I would expect it to be good.


#17

Did I really just plonk down $25 each for bottles of zin…?

Scott recommended it, guess so.


#18

Scott, will you tell this guy to send me 50 bucks? I’ll split it with you.


#19

The 2008 Cab Franc is 100% and more round on the palate, typical of the 2008 vintage, allowing for the pure expression of that grape. I felt it could stand alone.
The 2007 Cab Franc is a bigger, tighter wine with 20% Cab Sauv in the mix as a more typical blend.
