« Prev Next » 4 of 9
Average price: $17.99 from 6 stores
Big crushed berry nose, all boysenberry toned with smoky top notes. A hint of creaminess greets the palate followed by some fine sandalwood and spice notes, then a touch of nutty oak in a big plush style that fills the mouth with pure rich crushed blackberry fruit with hints of juniper and smoked meats on the long, powerful finish. Palate staining, and a powerhouse, Classic Lodi Zin. 90pts

  • 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.
