Professional Wine Reviews for Robert Biale Zinfandel R.W. Moore Vineyard 2017

Rated 93 by Wine Enthusiast
This wine from a historic vineyard offers lifted tones of cranberry and herb alongside well-integrated acidity. Full bodied in style, it offers dark chocolate and toffee notes in contrast to the brighter elements.
Rated 93 by Wine & Spirits
Bill Moore purchased this property, east of the town of Napa, in 1983; it included a zinfandel vineyard planted in 1905. The vines that Moore has been able to sustain are now the oldest in Coombsville, a relatively cool place for zinfandel, and the source of this remarkable Napa red. Tilt the glass and the color may shift from vibrant garnet to purple ruby. Smell it and you might find anise and fennel, hibiscus and nettles, all intertwined with cool, formidably tight claret-red fruit. It feels classical, destined for long development in the cellar, or for decanting with a charcuterie board.

Winery Robert Biale

Region: California

Since the 18th century, California has been a hugely important and influential wine region, acting as a trailblazer for other New World wine regions and utilizing an important blend of traditional and contemporary practices, methods and techniques relating to their wine production. Split into four key areas – the North Coast, the Central Coast, the South Coast and the Central Valley – Californian wineries make the most of their ideal climate and rich variety of terrains in order to produce a fascinating range of wines made with a long list of different fine grape varietals. Today, the state has almost half a million acres under vine, and is one of the world's largest wine exporters, with Californian wines being drunk and enjoyed all across the globe.

Country: United States

Of all the New World wine countries, perhaps the one which has demonstrated the most flair for producing high quality wines - using a combination of traditional and forward-thinking contemporary methods - has been the United States of America. For the past couple of centuries, the United States has set about transforming much of its suitable land into vast vineyards, capable of supporting a wide variety of world-class grape varietals which thrive on both the Atlantic and the Pacific coastlines. Of course, we immediately think of sun-drenched California in regards to American wines, with its enormous vineyards responsible for the New World's finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines, but many other states have taken to viticulture in a big way, with impressive results. Oregon, Washington State and New York have all developed sophisticated and technologically advanced wine cultures of their own, and the output of U.S wineries is increasing each year as more and more people are converted to their produce.

Appellation: Napa Valley

When it comes to New World wines, and especially wines from the United States of America, Napa Valley is something of a standard bearer. Over its relatively short history, it has managed to transform itself from being a fairly insignificant region, to becoming one of the most important and highly regarding wine locations on earth. With an ideal climate for viticulture, blazing sunshine and a low level of rainfall, this valley is shielded on many sides by mountain ranges which help it maintain a consistent level of heat, light and moisture throughout the year. Today, Napa Valley is a home of innovation and quality, with dozens of grape varietals thriving in the fertile soils. However, the main varietals grown there have always been Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Zinfandel, and the wines they produce are constantly lauded by critics and competitions across the globe.
