Gregarious Napa Zin from 100+ year-old Vineyard


 

The RW MOORE VINEYARD is one of California’s oldest and best known Zinfandel vineyards, planted in 1905! Many might know this vineyard from the Turley “EARTHQUAKE” bottling. 

Molly is the niece of Bill Moore (RW Moore) and of course Mike is an Hendry (From Hendry winery fame). Mike and Molly married in 2009, and produced their first vintage from the Moore Vineyard that year.

Bill Moore has owned the Moore Vineyard since 1986. At a time when many old zinfandel vineyards were being pulled and replanted to Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, Bill had the foresight to preserve this important piece of Napa’s history and the wines that it produces. Today, less than 2% of Napa’s vineyard acreage is planted to Zinfandel. The Moore (earthquake vineyard) has been a Turley source for decades, so it was only fitting that Mike and Molly used it too.

Robert Parker: “Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Zinfandel Mike And Molly charges out of the gate with gregarious scents of stewed plums, baked blackberries and raspberry pie plus suggestions of incense, Chinese five spice and tobacco leaf with a waft of hoisin. Full-bodied, concentrated and ever so spicy, the palate is packed with baked berry flavors with lively acidity to balance and pleasantly chewy tannins, finishing long and peppery.”

WS 92 Points: “This graceful wine is aged in French oak, one-third of it new. Brambly, rich red fruit remains lifted and structured on the palate, alongside a grip of baking spice, black pepper and leather.”
