New from David Ramey - 93 pts                                                The Sidebar 2016 Old Vine Zinfandel, Russian River Valleycome from Sidebar, a new label from winemaker legend David Ramey and Ramey Wine Cellars. It is the product of the Ramey team’s desire to have some fun and a little instant gratification while waiting for our Ramey bottlings to mature. “A unique field blend of Zinfandel and fourteen other grape varieties from a heritage Russian River Valley vineyard, originally planted in 1890 and partially replanted in 1950 by Americo Rafanelli.”- David Ramey 93 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another gem in the lineup, the 2016 Zinfandel Old Vines comes from sites in the Russian River Valley. Ripe, classic Zinfandel notes of red plums, cedar, sandalwood, pepper, and flowers all emerge from this medium-bodied, fresh, vibrant effort that has fine tannins and impeccable balance. It’s seriously good and a great value. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years."
