Gnarled Vine Zinfandel 2007
This traditional Lodi Zinfandel has jam and chocolate overtones and comes from our very own family vineyards. This wine pairs well with pizza, burgers, and grilled sausages. Old vines, gnarled & sculpted by time, produce small yields of intensely flavored fruit. Every vintage is a rebirth of rich varietal character & a unique expression of the land.
Oak Ridge Winery was founded in 1934 as a winemaking cooperative of local growers. During the last 8 years a historic landmark has been transformed into a state-of-the-industry winery. Today we are family-owned and operated, proud of our heritage and passionate about creating wonderful wines.
Enjoyable earthy tones in a rich smooth flavor
smooth wine when allowed to breath -- better served chilled and alone
Very good wine, must let it breath though!
For the price this is a pretty good Zin. It is fairly full bodied with a great aroma. If you like berries you will like this as it leans towards berries. I found it very nice with pasta. Cost was around 8 bucks which makes it a good wine to just drink.
Big black juicy fruit smell with a oak, red meat leather and juicy taste. Loads of body. Great Zin for the price
