Our #1 Most Popular Old Vine Zin  … NO COMPARISON.  made by Legendary Winemaker Kirk VENGE, MAC Masterpiece!

Ann Macauley Watson founded the Macauley winery in the early 1980s; her son Mac now runs the estate, working closely with his childhood friend Kirk Venge. Mac and Kirk share the same winemaking philosophy, aiming to create wines with depth and a range of complexity directly related to each site’s specific terroir, which means sourcing the best fruit from the best vineyards in Napa.

Macauley’s 2020 Old Vine Zinfandel arose from ancient vines averaging 115 years old from historic top vineyards in Napa, located throughout Napa Valley, including Korte Ranch, Kenefick Ranch, and Luvisi. The old vines limit yields, resulting in fruit with Tiny Berries, YET HUGE Flavors with concentrated and complex layers, giving the best qualities of the variety and providing the Macauley signature flavor profile.

Description

2020 MACAULEY OLD VINE NAPA VALLEY ZINFANDEL

100 Point Winemaker Kirk Venge’s signature style was first adored and praised during his first releases of the Legendary SCOUT’S HONOR Napa Valley Red; this Super-Famous Zinfandel based blend created a Massive Cult-Like Following, and at one point we were selling 10-15 cases per week! Fans were ordering Three to Four 15-packs, and it was Awesome… OK, so just recently were imbibing and enjoying a bottle of THIS MAC ZIN, and It is so Amazing in comparison my friends!! My mouth is still watering Y’all … Grab your cases now – because this is killer juice!

Edward’s Extended Notes, “The nose on the Macauley Old Vine Zinfandel is the most luscious Blueberry Pie imaginable! As the wine opens it gets deeper with each sip … at first, there’s lovely spices and fresh fruit with lavender, cloves, wild blackberries, and black raspberries. As you sip & swirl, it gets Bigger and Bolder, yet so smooth… On the palate the wine has flavors of crushed blackberry, dark-chocolate covered strawberry, white pepper, a hint of toast, and sweet smores linger. This stunning Zin has silky, fine tannins that coat the mouth and flow into a sultry finish. You can enjoy it now and every person in the room at your event will smile as you pour! The finely integrated acidity will allow the wine to age for another decade or so. My mouth is still watering from last night. For the many Fans of Legendary Winemaker Kirk Venge and his Scouts Honor, and Lovers of Ancient Old Vine Zinfandel I highly recommend stocking up with a few cases before this  Napa Valley Delight before it vanishes… it will likely go fast now. A perfect pairing would be Honey-Glazed Ham, or BBQ anything! So Good – thanks Kirk and Cheers Mac! WOW guys!”  CALIHIWINES 98+POINTS
