Morgan Twain-Peterson is a force of nature and one of the hardest working winemakers in the world. His tireless dedication to finding, restoring, and preserving old vine, historic vineyards throughout California is admirable and rewarding. Why? Because it is fruit from these very special, heritage vineyards that go into his wines, and we're talking seriously old vine "stuff."

Morgan's Old Vine Zinfandel, his entry-level bottling, is always fantastic, but it's extra special this year. In fact, a lot of the juice that normally goes into their vineyard-designated wines made its way into this offering. We're talking Evangelho, Nervo Ranch, Pagani, and Morgan's own Bedrock Vineyard. These are some of the top Zinfandel vineyards in the world.

"Because of the COVID pandemic and uncertain short-term economic outlook, the 2019 includes quite a bit of wine that in more normal times would he bottled in the vineyard designates. Stated simply: buy as much as you can." - Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media

I actually spoke with Morgan about this wine recently, and he told me he thinks it's the best version of this one he's ever made. I agree with him 100%! There's wonderful energy here, in the form of zesty acids, but don't worry, there's also plenty of ripe fruit. I absolutely love the balance of this wine, and I think it would be awfully good paired with classic holiday meals.

Antonio Galloni had additional wonderful things to say about this wine, and his reviews are about as straight up and accurate as they come. "The 2019 Zinfandel Old Vine is gorgeous. Bright acids and floral overtones perk up the red berry fruit in a Zinfandel that delivers the goods, and plenty more. Bright and beautifully layered, the 2019 hits all the right notes. Then again, it is a blend of stellar sites, including Bedrock, Nervo, Sodini, Evangelho, Katushas’, Teldeschi, Pagani Ranch and Old Hill."

You've heard it before, and you're about to hear it again. We bought our distributor out of this one, so once the 14 cases we ordered are gone, the deal is over. If I were you, I'd act fast on this one!
