Top Lodi Zinfandel Tasted 4/14

3. Harney Lane Zinfandel Lodi Old Vine Lizzy James Vineyard (2011)

« Prev Next » 3 of 9
Deep, oak framed slightly musky aromas of blackberry, black raspberry and boysenberry greets the nose with hints of hickory nuts and pipe briar along with a nuance of peppercorn adding detail. Bright acids on entry, rather transparent in the mouth with lots of cranberry accented cherry fruit, that turns more toward the blackberry spectrum with vanilla arriving on the midpalate turning a bit peppery on the backend before returning to blackberry fruit on the palate. Complexity with lovely transparency and depth. 91pts

  • 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.
