Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Our 2011 Plungerhead Lodi Zinfandel is dark purple in color with a lot of old vine character aromas. The aromas are reminiscent of black cherry, blackberry compote, aged balsamic reduction, earthy mushroom, musky leather, and smoky bacon. On your palate, you will see flavors of sweet blackberries, black pepper, cherry hard candy, plum preserves, coriander, roasted French Oak, and hints of leather, cinnamon bark, and mint. On the finish, there are notes of candied toasted pecan, cherries jubilee, smoked sea salt, and dried blueberries. This is a very layered style of Lodi Zinfandel. It keeps turning corners and going from fruity to savory to tart and then back to sweet.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) A sophisticated, rich 2011 Zinfandel that also contained 5 percent Petite Sirah, 5 percent Primitivo and 5 percent Sirah. The bouquet was redolent of black cherries and ripe summer blackberries, with a delicate hint of violets; and generous flavors of blackberries and black plums were layered with spicy, vivacious hits of cinnamon and black pepper, with a lovely roasted oakiness and a touch of leather on the finish.
