    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Jackass Vineyard Zinfandel has aromas of cherry pit, strawberries and flinty characteristics. Flavors include blackberry, anise, and clove spice with roasted figs.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Martinelli's Zinfandel portfolio continues to grow, with as many as five different offerings now available. The 2006 and 2007 Jackass Hill Vineyard cuvees were not tasted at this visit. However, the other four wines I tasted, all from steep hillside vineyard sites with the newer plantings planted from bud wood of both the Jackass Hill and Jackass vineyards, were brilliant. They are among the fullest-bodied, headiest, most distinctive Zinfandels made in California.

    The Wine Advocate

    Deep red color. Fresh raspberry, blueberry, rose and smoky minerals on the nose. Primary red and dark berry flavors are brightened by zesty, peppery spices and firmed by gentle tannins. Seemed to gain energy with aeration, picking up candied rose and mace qualities. Finishes with a hint of black pepper and outstanding persistence. This is strikingly energetic for such a concentrated wine.
