"The 2017 Zinfandel Ponzo, from a vineyard in the Russian River Valley, is bright, perfumed and light on its feet. Floral overtones, vibrant red fruit and mid-weight structure are front and center. This is another 2017 that really impresses with its pulsing acids and Pinot-like feel." -AG, Oct/2019
