57. St. Amant Winery Zinfandel Lodi Old Vines Mohr-Fry Ranch Vineyard (2011)

« Prev Next » 57 of 77
Mineral, dark and inky on the nose with blue fruit that’s a little funky with carob top notes. This is way plummy on entry, with ashy spice notes in a very smooth, powerful way with fine density. It’s a wine that expresses spicy Zin berry fruit well, but it is soft, and a little creamy, even with lots of ripe tannins lending a peppery edge to the core of fruit here. The finish shows both sweetness and heat along with spice notes, a bit much for me. 88 points

They only produce 4 varietal of Reds, Merlot, Syrah, Cab, and Zin, and they don't sell anything less that 9 years old. Currently working on their 2003 vintage. They are located at 5185 Union Road, across the street from Pear Valley. The owner is from Italy, and makes his own pasta and sauce, sausage, and salami, which he serves in his restaurant, which is on site. His fresh pizza's are to die for. If you haven't been there you need to try it, his wines are soooo smooth.
