2017 Once & Future Wine Zinfandel Oakley Road Vineyard - USA, California, San Francisco Bay, Contra Costa County (10/24/2019)
Last minute replacement for a bottle of a different wine that was corked, so this one did not get any advance air. I just popped and poured. No matter, it still showed off. Bright red fruit, deep savory tones and a bit of finishing dusty herb were wrapped together in a texture that was rich enough to feel ripe, but not in any way overripe. My only minor quibble was a bit of heat on the finish, even at a serving temp (room temp) of 62 F/17 C. I may err on the side of caution because of that, and drink my other bottles sooner rather than later. The future is now!
