Grand Reserve Fox Creek Vineyard Zinfandel 1999

I’m becoming a bigger and bigger fan of quality mid-priced reds with one or two decades of bottle age. #sierrafoothills #zinfandel 25 years in, not surprised to be greeted by nutty sherry, caramel, toffee notes on nose. No primary bramble fruit aromas left. Palate was delightful with unexpectedly sturdy acidity, ghostly traces of tannins. No fade on second day after uncorking proving this wine could go even more distance. Paired well with plant-based pepperoni pizza. — 22 days ago

Lytton Springs Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Blend 2018

Young quality #zinfandel #petitsirah blend by Ridge - blackberry pie filling, vanilla and other sweet spices on the nose; beautifully balanced fruit and acidity ending in grippy tannins. Methinks this wine would be better laid down for 5+ years. — 3 years ago

Small Batch Bourbon Barrel Aged California Zinfandel 2018

#bourbonbarrelaged #zinfandel
I can smell the bourbon barrel used to age this wine. The palate has
#junkinthetrunk, black fruit, and smoke. Be sure to decant this wine. Not the best pairing with chili half-smokes. 8.5 out of 10

Grist Vineyard Zinfandel 2018

Pleasantly balanced #zinfandel. More subtle than expected bramble fruit nose. Beautifully restrained Zin on palate - succulent acidity, some vanilla, toasty oak notes, characteristic spice on the finish. — a year ago

Prototype Lodi Zinfandel 2018

I concur with @Byron C Mayes - good QPR #lodi #zinfandel here. The 2018 vintage looks to be even hotter than 2019 at 15% ABV. Airing it out and a day in the wine fridge helped. Heady blackberry pie filling nose, syrupy mouthfeel from that high alcohol, coffee and dark chocolate flavors mid-palate. There’s less of that expected Zin spice but enough acidity to keep things interesting. Definitely recommended for ~$9 at Total Wine if Zin is your thing. — 3 years ago

Dry Suisun Valley White Zinfandel 2019


I really like this for so many reasons. #1 the bottle/jug. #2 the oldskool retro label #3 it’s a dry white #zinfandel #4 it has so much typicity of Zin on the nose and on the palate I find it somewhere between a #rosé and a light red. — 2 years ago

Fun, had me stoked for a Rubired review (same jug bottling), but down with White Zin too.

Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2017

Revisited one of my old favorites. This #zinfandel is very dark in the glass with deep purple hues. The body is heavy and compact with a somewhat fresh and cassis like. Tasting a savory component as the seed. Mildly tannic, moderate acid. #wine — 3 years ago
