Wine Enthusiast Best of Year 2016
90 points: J. Rickards 2014 Zanzi Curve Vines Malbec (Alexander Valley). Depths of earth and tobacco define this well-made, robust and lengthy wine, given to both red and blue berry fruit and plenty of juicy acidity. It shows again how well the grape seems to do in this appellation from specific sites. —V.B.
