Freakshow Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Time for my #FridayCabernetfix . Here's a nice one from Lodi, California.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, smoke, chocolates, mocha, earth, leather, peppercorn and graphite.

Full bodied, smooth and bold, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate and very fruity, with blackberries, sweet plums, cherry pie, dried figs, tobacco, spices, wood, vanilla, earth, chocolate cake, coffee, peppercorn and leather.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This Lodi Cabernet is always enjoyable. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. As a 4 year old, it is much softer, with a tangy ending. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Might be too fruity for some.

Wine Enthusiasts 91 points.

Pairs well with a big piece of steak.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

This is the Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel. The berry really hits you as soon as it touches the tongue. Raspberry and blackberry, with a hint of fig and baking spices. Mild tannins and balanced acidity #tastingroom — 9 days ago

Inconspicuous Lodi Zinfandel

Very good. Aromas if Zin. Taste of food Zin. Must be a pretty good Zin. It was! 2nd day: chilled. I really like it cool right out of the fridge. It makes the wine tight a bit and the Zin sweetness is managed by it. Cool find! — a day ago

Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel 2013

Really great red. Full flavoured without being heavy. Rich, red fruitiness to it - cherries, blackberries - with a vanilla undertone and a kick of peppery spiciness in the finish. Delicious. — 8 days ago
