A classic old vine Zinfandel, this wine pays tribute to its heritage with great structure, concentrated flavor and a long, luscious finish. Aromas of boysenberry, clove and cinnamon are followed by flavors of mixed berries, red licorice, tobacco leaf and mulling spices.

Wine AdvocateI tasted five Zinfandels from St. Francis. The 2013 Zinfandel Old Vines, made from 50- to 110-year-old vines, is a gorgeous Zinfandel - deep ruby purple, with loads of blackberry and black cherry fruit, full-bodied opulence, good purity and richness. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

Wine EnthusiastFor a large-production wine meant to be widely distributed and enjoyed, this brawler hits it out of the park in savory leather and juicy tannin. Just the right dusting of cinnamon appears atop the full-bodied black fruit.

Wine SpectatorBriary and a bit rustic, with modest notes of raspberry, charred herb and cracked pepper. Drink now through 2021. 48,000 cases made.
