“This review is a testament to our hard work and patience in the vineyard and the cellar,” said Dick Vermeil, Super Bowl-winning coach and partner with winemaker Paul Smith of OnThEdge Winery. “Paul Smith has done an exemplary job of crafting fine wines that captures the essence of our vineyard.”
Vermeil has worked closely with Smith on the highly acclaimed line of Vermeil Wines and the equally impressive companion brand of Paul’s OnThEdge Winery.
“The 2009 vintage is one of the best Zinfandels we have produced from 1908 Luvisi block,” Smith said. “The balance, structure and complexity of the wine are what earned it the rating of 93.”
Review from the Connoisseurs Guide to California Wines
93 for 2009 Luvisi “1908” Zinfandel (Napa Valley). 14% Petite Sirah. Filled out with compelling and long-lasting Zinfandel fruit and remarkably adept at managing its high ripeness, this gusty, full-bodied youngster is exceptionally well-balanced for the big wine that it is. Rather than running to softness, it firms and tightens up as it goes, and its fine spine of integral tannins tags it as one that will only get better if allowed four or five years of age.
