Turley

Dogtown Vineyard Zinfandel 2002

I had my doubts, and I’m glad I didn’t hold it a day longer, but this is lovely now. Deep transparent ruby, with a musty perfume of ripe red and purple fruits, raisins, fruit leather, a little balsamic note and allspice. Fruit on the palate is stewed but vibrant, with some orange peel bitterness adding complexity on the finish. Decanted off sediment, but didn’t need any time to air.. very delicate and aromatically open at this point. — 11 days ago

Nothing better than well-aged Zinfandel 👍

@Severn Goodwin I hadn’t tried any nearly this old before, but found some vintage Turley on sale at blacksmith wines for less than the cost of current release, so it was a no-brainer! Always nice to try something new.

Freakshow Lodi Zinfandel 2013

Big heavy ripe dark fruit on nose. Overripe strawberry and raspberry. Dark fruit on the tongue with a lingering essence of molasses. Light tannins that squeeze the tongue and not the gums. Maybe a hind of baking cocoa. — 9 days ago

Hunted Lodi Zinfandel 2018

I don’t normally drink Zinfandel but this one to me tastes nothing like a Zin. It’s very big and bold with a very high alcohol content. — 2 days ago

Really enjoyed this. Drank it solo and then with sushi. Complex and interesting but not too heavy. (2016) — 7 days ago

181 Lodi Merlot

Smooth but only drinks smooth the first day. Doesn’t hit well in palate next day. But still like it. Juicy, spicy vanilla & cherry notes. I’m a noble vines fan. All the ones they have!! 😋 — 7 days ago

This was a delight! It looked a bit light when pouring, but showed abundant fruit on the nose which carried to the palate. Well balanced with a touch of acid, but quite enjoyable and pleasing to drink. I will not hesitate to buy more! — 13 days ago

Gnarly Head

Old Vine Zin Lodi Zinfandel 2018

Barnyard nose, with very little fruit. Flavor bomb! Luscious red cherry, cedar, spicy, super smooth, and not a hint of tannins. Amazing for 10 bucks. — 12 days ago
