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.

Deep purple in color with a purplish rim.

Strong and fruity nose of blackberries, figs, oak, tobacco, leaf, vanilla, spices, cloves, penicillin, black pepper, light vegetables, alcohol and strawberry puree.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Very fruity on the palate and dry, with black currants, sweet plums, figs, dried fruits, spices, wood, cloves, vanilla, cloves, pencil lead, beef jerky, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Medium finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a very enjoyable, jammy and fruity, Zinfandel from Lodi, California. Well-balanced with mild complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Enjoyable by itself as a sipping wine and great for parties.

Good right out of the bottle as this is an easy drinking red, and would pair nicely with a grilled burger too.
