Thousands of Zin lovers flocked to the ninth annual Zinfandel Tasting sponsored by ZAP (Zinfandel Advocates and Producers) on Saturday, January 29 at Fort Mason, San Francisco. Attendees had the opportunity to taste Zinfandel from the 1997 and 1998 vintages offered up by about 225 wineries. Although many 98s are excellent, the vintage as a whole is not as good as 97. Most of the wines I tasted were from the 1998 vintage.

There were several outstanding new wineries at the tasting that deserve mention. Aida Vineyard. Napa Valley, made famous by Turley, is now its own winery with owners Karen and Oliver Caldwell at the helm. The 1997 Aida Vineyard is a 90-point wine with an elegant, structured style. Brown Estate Vineyards is another Napa Valley newcomer that has produced one of the best 1997 Zins I’ve tasted as well as an excellent 1996. (See Wine Reviews for tasting notes.) Outpost Wine Cellars. Howell Mountain appellation, showcased their excellent 1998 which is reviewed under Future Releases.

Other impressive efforts from established wineries included the 1998 Hendry Block 7 and Block 28; 1998 Peachy Canyon. Benito Dusi; 1998 Random Ridge. Old Wave; 1997 Ravenswood. Cooke; 1998 Ridge Geyserville ; 1998 Rosenblum Annette’s Reserve; 1998 and 1997 Saxon Brown Casa Santinamaria Vineyard; 1998 St. Francis. Old Vines; 1998 Steele. Pacini; 1997 Tria. Napa Valley; 1998 Turley. Dogtown Vineyard. See Future Releases or Wine Reviews for more information.

Did you know that in 1998, about 50% more Zinfandel was harvested than Cabernet Sauvignon in California? Or, that Zinfandel is the same variety as Primitivo di Gioia? These facts were gleaned from the Resource Guide to Zinfandel published by ZAP and written by Juli Ann Kodmur and Rebecca Robinson. ZAP describes itself as "…a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to advance the public’s knowledge of, and appreciation for Zinfandel, and its unique place in American culture and history."
