2008 Lodi Zinfandel
Gold Medal: 2010 Denver International. Try Lot 170 which is the sister blend to Lot 163.
Dark red with a purple rim. On the nose, there are aromas of strawberry compote, chocolate, and peppercorns. Notes of dried fruit, smoke, and mineral fill out the layers of ripe fruit and body. With a velvety finish and active acidity, these qualities once again epitomize Old Vine Zinfandel's distinctive "of-the-earth" style.
Style: Full, Bold
