Martinelli Giuseppe and Luisa Zinfandel 2018

Ships in 2-3 business days.

The Giuseppe & Luisa Zinfandel is produced from vines that were grafted from the budwood of the centurion vines on Jackass Hill and planted on a rocky knoll above the Martinelli Winery. The brightly colored label is the original label that Giuseppe used when he started the first Martinelli winery on Martinelli Road in the 1880s.

The 2018 Zinfandel Giuseppe and Luisa has a medium ruby color and an elegant profile, with a nose of saline, apricots, raspberry and strawberry, plus notes of black tea, blood orange and earth. Medium-bodied, it has a silky texture and nuanced flavor layers with seamless freshness and a long, layered finish.

The 2018 Zinfandel Giuseppe & Luisa is, in my view, once again the most distinctive Zinfandel in this range. Bright acids, floral overtones and chiseled red fruit scream with Russian River character. Medium in body, gracious and beautifully perfumed, the Giuseppe & Luisa is flat-out gorgeous. I loved it. Drinking window: 2023 - 2033.
