2012 Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel

A lush, rich wine from California's Zin capital.
  • Wine Enthusiast Best Buy
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.

Style: Medium, Fruity

Flavors: Chocolate, Licorice, Spice

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.
