Our Zinfandel was aged for 12 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, 20% of which were new. At this level of "new wood", the up-front endearing quality of Zinfandel can assert itself. Aromas of a briar patch on a hot summer day carry over to the palate and are carried in a mouth-filling, deeply layered, juicy package. The wine was crafted for immediate enjoyment but for those who enjoy a more complex wine displaying some bottle-aged character, aging for another two to three years is a good option.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a classy, elegant expression of the variety, despite its brawn and ripe density. Fruit-forward, with blackberry and cherry flavors, it shows traces of vanilla, spicy pepper and smoky oak. The texture is soft, with subtle tannins.

Wine AdvocateBuehler is such a consistently good winery and their 2014 Zinfandel from Atlas Peak is a steal. Delicious berry fruit, spice, pepper and earth, a soft underbelly, ripe tannin and medium to full body make for a seductive, lush Zinfandel to drink over the next several years.

Wine SpectatorThis shows focus and structure, with notes of black cherry, mineral and pepper. Drink now through 2023. 3,000 cases made.
