This tends to be among the best of the slightly sweet Lodi Zins. It is restrained in its jamminess and, while big, not full of port-level ABV. The flavors are blackberry and raspberry but the acidity is more balanced than most. I would recommend pairing with a spicy or peppery steak dinner, not so much as a cocktail wine.

Juicy and raisinated cassis, strawberry, currants, and cherries. Licorice, anise, hints of black pepper, little oak or earth. Apricot and peach. Full throttle. Medium (minus) acidity, and sweet tannins. A lot of residual sugar.

Everything you'd expect from a Lodi zin: spicy, a little jammy, sweet on the front end, heat on the back. Good pizza wine

Nice aroma of plum and dark cherries, bold and spicy which I personally enjoy. Better after aerating or allowing to breath for a while.
