2007 Four Vines Maverick

With the nickname of “Zinbitch” cited as his moniker on the winery website, research of wine maker Christian Tietje and Four Vines sets the bar pretty high as he founded the winery to make “killer zins from the four top appellations for old vine Zinfandel grapes.”

The 2007 Four Vines Maverick is an excellent example of Zinfandel. The chewy flavors of vanilla, licorice, berry, and pepper differ from many Zins as this is “Big Zin” but without being overly fruit forward.

I liked this wine so much I had to go out and find the less expensive Old Vine Cuvee to try (more to follow). Can’t let the name “Maverick” and this wine get by without a “Great Balls of Fire.”

Rating: 2$, 4q, 3v
