Wine Details

This is definitely the most lush, inviting Zin we’ve produced in many years. Dark berries on the nose, with hints of chocolate, incense smoke, and tantalizing of spice aromas to boot. The palate delivers beautifully, with flavors of dark fruit, toasty spice, and a touch of licorice. Chocolate bass notes complete the package. Clearly a lot of new oak on this wine, but beautifully integrated. A warm, inviting wine that you’ll enjoy glass after glass, bottle after bottle.

Cam Confidential

2012 is probably our best Lodi Zin to date – great hang time in a picture perfect vintage. As a continuation of our ongoing Lodi partnership, no expense was spared in this attempt to bring you a lush, rich Zinfandel experience. The wine began dense and concentrated, and benefitted from 10 months in both French and American oak. The end result is a wine that is darkly hued and beautifully aromatic – a fine example of how Lodi has really found its place in the top tier over the past decade.

My rule of thumb here is if it's a red from Lodi, I'm buying it. This was no exception, perfect for the price.

Great find for the price; perfect for casual affairs; went well with grilled foods; the description states a medium bodied Old Vine; however, I found it to be a tad lighter than I expected, and the finish wasn't as "smooth" as I anticipated for an Old Vine Zin, but it was still a good, solid, wine choice.

Subtle nose of dark cherries and plum, same with taste with a soft finish.

Lot 464 is the best old vine Zin yet. Wonderfully rich with deep raisiny, fruity, earthy flavor and just the perfect level of sweetness.

Great bottle of Lodi Zin. You can taste that brambly dark fruit right off the bat.

Finishes nice, especially after a half hour. Open it, let it breathe a bit and enjoy.

Really good deal.
