WINE REVIEW: Girasole Vineyards 2019 Zinfandel, Mendocino Co. CA ($17)
by Andrew Chalk
Girasole Vineyards, planted by Charlie Barra in 1955. Now amounting to 300 acres sitting on benchlands above the Russian River in Mendocino County. There is a big focus on sustainability. Organic agriculture, capturing runoff from vineyards in ponds for irrigation and frost protection.
Appearance: Vibrant translucent ruby.
Nose: Savory ripe red fruit.
Taste: Fruit forward, very ripe raspberry.Straightforward flavors.
A good value, everyday drinking wine. Don’t over analyse, just enjoy!
