@jmdavidson1 shared detailed tasting notes in their Lab Rat Report I can see this being preferred as a summer sipper. This wine has many years left in it, so either drink now or hold.
@larsrulz in his family Lab Rat Report, a good decant and The consensus was this would be a good price at $25. So at $17 or $20, it is a steal. I would probably put it my the top 3 Zins... I’m most excited to see if I can squeeze Meeker into my next Sonoma trip this Aug/Sept.
@winesmith said in a Note from a Winemaker Well, it’s my job to drink on the job. I’m ordering this blind simply because it’s fun to support such fine folks who I know will not let me down.
@lucasmeeker in Notes from the Vintner, said Hi all, I’m here to answer questions! The splash page and the notes do a good job setting expectations, but I really like to hammer this one home: this is not contemporary, post-Y2K Zin. This is post-prune-orchards, 1970s Dry Creek Zin. These are wines that will continue to develop for at least another decade. For some context: I wouldn’t be surprised to see them go longer. About half of our 80s Zins still drink, and about 2/3 of the 90s.
