Old Vine Lodi Zinfandel 2018

While I can't quite meet the WE critic who gave this wine 92 points, I definitely agree that is "liberally spiced with oak." In fact, when I first opened the bottle, all I got was this liberal spice, and even more heat (15.4% ABV)! The pepper and alcohol overpowered everything. Then tonight I revisited it and I'm glad I did. The wine had mellowed the eff out, revealing beautiful cherry and strawberry fruit flavors, along with cinnamon, chocolate and sweet pipe tobacco. 100% Zinfandel. 9/7/22. — 24 days ago

Ode to Lulu California Old Vine Rosé Blend 2021

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2021 Rosé Ode to Lulu shows mineral-tinged aromas of red berries, nectarine and citrus zest complemented by herb notes. Silky and energetic on the palate, offering white peach, strawberry and tangerine flavors with delineation and tension. A floral note lingers on the finish. $24.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2022) — 2 months ago

Vine Starr Sonoma County Zinfandel 2021

Is this the best zin in the world? Probably. This year is outstanding. Smell of plums, earth, a hint of vanilla, spice, cherry jam, earth. So freaking good! You get all the flavors you want from zin without the 15% abv and vanilla/oak overboard. — 3 months ago
