2013 Medley

  • 94 points & Editors' Choice - Wine Enthusiast
  • Recommended by Gabe Sasso - Snooth "Medley is a blend of the best vineyard lots and represents Alegria Vineyards as a whole. It’s composed of Syrah, Zinfandel, Cinsault, Sangiovese, Muscats, Viognier, Dolcetto, Alicante Bouschet, Petite Sirah, and more. Taken as a piece the ACORN wines are remarkably balanced, acid rich, food friendly offerings that age well. This vintage of Medley fits that bill to a tee. The nose resembles nothing more than a big bowl of fresh red fruits. The palate is stuffed with cherry and red currant as well as a host of spices. Vanilla bean, earth, mushroom, and sweet cocoa are all part of the finish. This wine is simply awesome. It’s fantastic now and will age well for at least a dozen years.”

  • "From an historic vineyard site in the northwestern reaches of the appellation comes this rich, hedonistic expression of red berry and blackberry pie topped with cinnamon sugar. Firm structure frames the warm fruit and dusty leather character, making it great for a cool fall night." - Virginie Boone, Sonoma Magazine

2013 Zinfandel ~ Heritage Vines

  • 91 points - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
    "This delicious, sexy style of Zinfandel offers loads of nuances, with plenty of black cherry and blackcurrant, underbrush, licorice and spice. It is peppery, rich and medium to full-bodied, but at the same time elegant and stylish.”
