Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Saldo is the prototypical Zinfandel that showcases some of Northern California's most renowned Zinfandel vineyards and regions. The word "Saldo" is of Latin origin often referring to "from here and there" or in this case, representing our sourcing of Zinfandel from regions "here and there" across Northern California. We source from California's oldest, dry-farmed, historic vineyards. These vines are grown in distinct soil types in the cool climates of Sonoma and Mendocino county and stretching inland to the warmer regions of Lodi and the Sierra Foothills.

The wine displays a dark ruby colour with bold aromas of blackberry, plum and clove. The entry is rich and full, with juicy acidity encircled in flavours of Mexican chocolate, cherry and vanilla extract. There is a voluptuous and persistent finish with smooth tannins."


93/100 & Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast USA (2015 Vintage)
"This is a beautifully polished, full-flavoured wine from the producer of The Prisoner. It has a captivating, velvety texture, mouthfilling blackberry and black-cherry flavours and a warm coating of perfumed but subtle oak permeating from the first whiff to the lingering finish."


90/100 Cameron Douglas MS, April 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"Enticing, fruity and intense bouquet with dark red berry fruits, wild cherry and spices with a whisper of pepper. Dry, warm and fruity; noticeable alcohol, firm (ish) tannin and medium+ acidity, red flowers, spice and lengthy flavourful finish. Drink now and through 2026."


Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, July 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright pinky/red black. Concentrated and fruity on the nose with vanilla and spice and touches of leather.  A high alcohol opulent wine brimming with bright berry fruit and jam biscuit notes yet with a well-balanced underling savouriness, juicy acidity and tannins that seem silky and seamless yet assert their presence on the finish.  A blend of 85% Zinfandel and 15% Petite Sirah and Syrah matured in French and American oak, 25% new, this is a powerful wine that as someone said, ‘needs a buffalo to accompany it.”"
