Wine Review: I have tried this wine many times over the years and this is the best one yet. The wine has a bit of a light bouquet for a Zin. On the palate, the wine is nicely flavored and well balanced. This wine is quite popular and will go well with grilled meats and be a hit at this summers first BBQ. The wine finishes a tad dry and has a little length. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Seven of Lodi's best growers gave their souls and the firstfruits of each of their old vine vineyards to contribute to the layered complexity of this fanciful blend. Soft, supple pepper and licorice-clove notes merge into a sinful marriage of deep, brambly blackberries and lustful cherries. The finish is clean on the palate with hints of rich vanilla, cocoa, and mild tannins.
