Very enjoyable. It starts with a fruity berry taste and finishes with smoky oak.

Fruit-forward, hint of black pepper on the finish. Enjoyable to sip and pretty flexible with foods. Paired adequately with med buffalo wings, even with the 14.5% abv.

Today is National wine day, so please make sure that you drink a glass of wine to celebrate...
Here is mine.

Bright ruby in color with medium intensity and a reddish rim.

Fruity nose of cherries, barnyard, raspberries, oak, red currants, smoke, chocolates, coffee, black pepper, green vegetables, herbs, spices, mocha, dust and alcohol.

Medium bodied and gentle with medium acidity and nice legs.

Fruity on the palate with cherries, raspberries, plums, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, smoke, spiced oak, light vegetables, coffee, milk chocolates, mocha and peppercorn.

Medium finish with soft tannins and black pepper.

This spicy Zinfandel from Lodi California is simple and soft, with a light mouthfeel. Easy drinking and plain. Balanced and not jammy at all.

Good right out of the bottle and does not change much with airtime. Would be a good red for parties or just by itself as a sipping wine by the porch.

Would be a good choice for the red wine beginner. Feels like an average Californian Red Blend.
Drinks very easily for the high alcohol it contains, so watch out... 😃

Ok table Zin. Tart berry with a slight alcohol tang on the back of the tongue. Vanilla & black pepper notes with a tiny hint of mustiness.

Nice smooth zin. Hints of dried cherry and cranberry. Great tart finish which was mellowed out with my aged ribeye.
