Wine Advocate 88 points - Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Lake Doctor Shiraz is slightly reduced to begin, giving way to aromas of freshly crushed black cherries, blackberries and mulberries with touches of tree bark, charcoal and pepper. Medium to full-bodied, it gives plenty of peppery red and black berry flavors in the mouth balanced by lively acid and a medium level of chewy tannins, finishing long. Drinking now, it should remain good through 2015+. (Dec 2012)

Wine maker notes
The Zonte’s Footstep Lake Doctor Vineyard is on the shores of Lake Alexandrina where, each summer afternoon the house-cooling breeze of our ‘Lake Doctor’ arrives and revives vines and vignerons alike. We have released this blend from the Lake Doctor Vineyard each vintage since 2003.

Producer
Zorzal is a young, boutique winery that began in 2007 by the Michelini brothers, Gerardo, Matias, and Juan Pablo (the winemaker) along with a group of Canadian investors, with it’s first vintage being 2008. The winery and vineyards are located in the subregion of the Uco Valley called Gualtallary, outside the town of Tupungato, at approximately 4500 feet above sea level, making it the highest winery in Mendoza. The estate consists of 70 hectares on a unique blend of sand, stones, and limestone and is planted to multiple varietals including Malbec, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, as well as a few others. The grapes are all hand harvested and the vision is to have a light hand in the winemaking to let the fruit and terroir shine. The winery practices organic methods in the vineyards and uses only indigenous yeast in the wine making process. Zorzal tends to pick it’s grapes a little earlier (greener) than most in Mendoza to retain freshness and acidity in their wines instead of the overblown ripeness that is too often seen. They are already considered to be a rising star in Argentina with their focused wines and enticing expression of multiple varietals above and beyond their stunning Malbecs.
