Critical Acclaim

WE94 Wine Enthusiast 5/1/2015

"Interplanted to Carignane, Alicante Bouschet and Grand Noir, this Zin vineyard hails back to 1895, a grande dame in the region, and is farmed by Ulises Valdez. The meticulous farming and winemaking are in full view, the wine velvety in blueberry and boysenberry fruit, while well-honed tannins and a full body announce its presence. On the finish is a satisfying streak of black licorice and pepper. Cellar through 2022." (94 pts.)

ST93 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar May/Jun 2014

"Opaque ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of red and dark berry liqueur, potpourri and Asian spices, with a bright mineral nuance adding lift. Large-scaled yet lithe on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and blueberry flavors given spine by a strong mineral quality. Finishes supple and long, with dusty tannins coming up slowly." (93 pts.)

VN92+ Vinous Feb 2014

"The 2012 Zinfandel Saitone Ranch stands out for its sense of detail and pure nuance. Constantly changing in the glass, the 2012 offers up an appealing mélange of black fruit, violets, spices, licorice and mint, all in a resonant, expressive style that is immensely appealing. I expect this supple highly expressive wine will drink well right out of the gate. The blend is 97% Zinfandel and 3% mixed blacks." (92–94 pts.)

SP92 Wine Spectator Web only – 2015

"Rich and ripe, yet nicely structured, with floral raspberry and strawberry aromas and bold, jammy flavors of cherry pie, Asian spice and sage, balanced by a core of fresh acidity and lively tannins. Drink now through 2021. 456 cases made." (92 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
