Caggiano Taurasi Vigna Macchia Dei Goti 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep, luminous ruby-red. Intense and persistent aromas of grilled bacon fat, chocolate-covered dried cherries, mint and smoke, with a touch of spicy graphite. Profoundly rich, spicy and dense, with flavors of raspberry jam, red cherry liqueur, black pepper and grilled steak. With its pleasantly chewy extract and silky tannins, this would appear to have great aging potential. Incidentally, well-kept bottles of the first vintages made here, '94 and '95, still show virtually no garnet hue whatsoever.

Well aware of the potential for quality that was long ignored by many winemakers outside the Lodi area; the Holdeners make a variety of different Zinfandels, each sporting its own distinctive qualities.
