Scholium FTPZ 2016
Scholium Project is the founding father of the single vineyard concept in California, and Abe Schoener has become a bit of cult wine maker.
Abe: " We have had the honour to work with the Kirschenmann vineyard since 2011, but this vintage of red wine from the vineyard is the first in which we have succeeded in expressing the special excellence of the site. For the first time, we have caught the very distinctive fruit character of Zinfandel, without making a wine that is fruity, or in any ways recalls the super-ripe and rich Zinfandels that became ubiquitous in another era. This is light but fresh and pungent. The vineyard ripens slowly but with great freshness and acid; we have caught both of these characteristics. Super wine, so characteristic of its origin."
