Top Lodi Zinfandel Tasted 4/14

1. Turley Kirschenmann Vineyard Zinfandel (2012)

Next » 1 of 9
Average price: $59.99 from 1 store
Fruity on the nose with lovely black berry aromas framed with nuanced cinnamon, allspice, sage, and earth aromas. Open, broad, and expansive in the mouth this shows a gorgeous texture with both power and delicacy in the mouth. The flavors show a bit of herbal edge to the blackberry fruit, as this turns firm and long on the finish. A fairly spicy Zin, this is very complete both texturally and the flavor profile with rich cherry, blackberry fruit on the finish and real purity and drive right through the finish which shows fine firm tannins and real cut. 94pts

  • 484000clutchman I have been buying "Campus Oaks" by the Gnekow Family winery for some years. I buy a case about every month. My last purchase was a 2010 - absolutely everything a full bodied Zin should be. Jammy and fruity but with a nice balance. and - just 10.00 bucks a bottle. What a deal.


  • 1319194Snoother 1319194 My favorite Lodi Zin has been Michael & David's "7 Deadly Zins". Big, jammy, some fat cherry sweetness with just enough spice to remind you it's a Cali zin. My favorite vintages were 2006 through 2008; the 2010 wasn't bad either.
