Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Extremely fruity on the nose with blackberries, black plums, cooked cherries, oak, licorice, vanilla, chocolates, coffee, cola, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry to off dry on the palate with sweet plums, blackcurrants, sweet raspberries, blackberries, cherry jam, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, cloves, chocolates, coffee, mocha, tobacco, light earth and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very enjoyable Zinfandel from Lodi, California. Well balanced and very fruity. Simple and spicy with lots of chocolate notes.

Good for everyday, good right out of the bottle and good for parties.

Good by itself or with food like a nice burger with fries.

Probably has some residual sugar, so might be too sweet for some.

13.95% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

Juicy with jammy ripe black cherries. Smells super thick. A hint of vanilla and slight baking spice. Slightly sweet tasting with ripe plums on the palate. Definitely a full bodied Zinfandel. There is a slight amount of heat on the finish.

Bang bang bang for your buck! Lush Lodi fruit supported by firm tannins and a spicy backbone. One of the best finds at the California Wine Fair. -- Wineshout.com

Deep Purple in color with a purple rim. A very nice color.

Very fruity on the nose with sweet plums, cooked cherries, figs, raisins, vanilla, wood, cloves, sage, licorice, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied and jammy, with medium acidity and long legs.

Extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, raisins, cooked cherries, oak, bacon, vanilla, ripe blueberries, earth spices, mocha, milk chocolate, smoke and peppercorn.

Nice length on the finish with very soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

A simple California Zinfandel but very tasty and easy to drink.
The palate is very much like a stew of dark and red berries. Easy drinking and well balanced.
Enjoyable by itself as a sipping wine, and a good party wine too.

Might have some residual sugar, but it has enough acidity to balance it out nicely.
A good entry wine for those moving from white wine to red.
Good right out of the bottle and doesn't change much with time.
Drink while young.

Although a bit jammy, I liked the fact that it has a tangy finish, so it is not cloying at all.

Oh baby! This is a juicy, jammy, lush smelling deep garnet bad ass! Smells of chocolate, and blueberries. A little allspice and blueberries on the palate. As jammy as this is it is a little lighter than you would expect an old Zin. This is a 2013 Zin. This is a keeper for sure! This could be a great go to wine to please any crowd.
