Baron Herzog Zinfandel Lodi Kosher 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Deep red color; full bodied wine with soft tannins and rich mouth feel. Big effusive aromas of ripe blackberry and bramble balanced with vanilla and spice from the barrel aging.

Herzog is a family owned New Zealand winery and restaurant, supported by a unique team of individuals who all share the same values: a passion for wine and food, commitment to excellence and quality, and a love for the great New Zealand environment. As the name suggests, Hans Herzog's roots lie in Switzerland where the family has grown wine since 1630. There Hans and Therese owned the successful 'Taggenberg' vineyard and restaurant in the Zurich wine country. Looking for a new challenge, in the mid 1990's they planted an 11 hectare vineyard bordering the Wairau River here in Marlborough and later moved the winery and Michelin-starred restaurant. Here Hans has adopted an experimentalist stance, cultivating an eclectic array of varieties, including Arneis, Barbera, Tempranillo and Zweigelt - as well as the more traditional Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The organically-managed vineyard benefits from a warm, dry microclimate and Hans ferments at cool temperatures using wild yeasts, the white wines barrel-fermented in 500 litre oak puncheons, the reds aged for 12-30 months in French oak barriques, creating wines rich in varietal character.

This is my first time sipping a Zinfandel in a while. The only other Zin I've had is the Barefoot Zinfandel. As much as I do enjoy it, it did make me stray from trying others as it has such a pronounced raspberry taste I borderline consider it a raspberry wine. Nonetheless, after my first sip of the Baron Herzog Zin, I was very delighted to find that this wasn't characteristic of all Zins! Very reminiscent of the Italian primitivos. A vivid berry taste that's very well balanced out by a present oak taste. Very happy I decided to try another Zinfandel!
