Top 10 wines in the US press

Bill St John picks out a Zinfandel that “sports power but sophistication” and Jon Bonné recommends an “irresistible” wine from an “exuberant vintage”.

USPressSt John focused on “Zin” in a feature for the Chicago Tribune, writing: “Californians are justly proud of their winemaking prowess with the grapes Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Yet, for decades before California even had its name, winemakers in Bordeaux and Burgundy had made notable wines from these same grapes.

“The wine grape that California might be prouder of is Zinfandel, which it has coddled since the 1850s and brought into prominence on its own turf. Though not native to our continent, it truly has become ‘America’s grape.'”

He added: “After recent tastings of 30 California zinfandels from recent vintages, what an awakening awaited! All in all, it was a seducing mix of heady perfumes, persistence of flavours, well-structured, nicely performing red wines.”
