Capital Z Zinfandel 2018

I didn’t have high expectations for this value #lodi #zinfandel. Blackberry jam aromas dominate. In the mouth there’s the expected rich briar fruit flood but it’s quickly followed by nice acid structure, dark chocolate and coffee notes mid-palate, faint warming spices and tongue-coating tannins on the long finish. It is unexpectedly quaffable and a dandy value at $11 from #wsjwineclub — a month ago

Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2016


I’m over #zinfandel I’ve really tried many with much hope and yet I’ve almost never been happily surprised. This is a lovely expression and yet it doesn’t do it for me. I prefer #garnacha from Spain. — 5 months ago

Cline Cellars

Old Vine Lodi Zinfandel 2016

A #zinfandel that’s much better balanced and elegant than previous examples from #lodi that I’ve tasted. No egregious fruit bomb here or excessive oak and smoke. @Tom Pilla is exactly right, dialed back fruitiness, some earthy zip and a touch of acid. — a year ago

Napa Valley Zinfandel 2013


Pretty amazing to taste a 2013 #zinfandel in 2019 and find it still alive and kicking and #wellbalanced There’s something to be said here about wines. With a sense of place and defending “native” varietals. — 7 months ago

I just opened the same bottle and vintage earlier this month and was really pleasantly surprised by the condition. Better than the last bottle I drank a couple years ago.

Ridge Vineyards

Lytton Springs Petite Sirah Blend 2015

Vintage 2015 / 74% zinfandel 16% petit shiraz 8% carignan 2% matador = mourvedre. Dark colour with cardinalred rim. A beneficent and seductive smell. Lots of cedar, marzipan, chocolate, spicyness too. Velvety in the mouth but with much power beneath. #ridge #zinfandel #sonomacounty Paired with beef tenderloin salsify and mushrooms. — a year ago
