James Suckling Review
This comes from a site originally planted in 1895. Aromas of blackberries, blueberries, chestnuts and roasted sage. Full-bodied with crushed dark berries and fresh mint. Velvety tannins. Cool wet-stone character through the plush palate. Well-balanced acidity and intensity. Best after 2024.
Wine Tasting Notes
Saitone is a classic in the making. This old vine Zinfandel vineyard in the Piner-Olivet region of the Russian River Valley is unparalleled for producing wines with density, precision, and verve. Highlighted by red fruits, the aromatics meld into notes of fennel, hints of peppercorn, and five-spice. Taut on the palate, the wine showcases liveliness and freshness with a dense core of dark fruits and a terrific finish of minerals and crushed rocks.
