(2012 Vintage) The 2012 Lodi Zinfandel is dark garnet in color with some wonderful old vine character aromas. There are notes of blackberry fruit, spice cake, fresh tobacco, white pepper, and fresh strawberry. In the mouth, you experience flavors of dried cranberry, blackberry, blackstrap molasses, brambly Zin fruit, toasted walnut, and hints of mocha laced cappuccino. This blend finishes with notes of dark chocolate, dried cherry, vanilla from American oak, and deep toasted hazelnut from French oak.
great with pungent cheese or other pungent/sour foods. not very spicy, but has a bite to it!
yum! didn't have what we ordered. a great sub!
Easy drinking Zin. Morris likes it too.
fruity, low tannin, mild spice... good!
acid and off flavors
