Member Review by aronowm2:

Soft and Spicy...drinking right now at a Superbowl party and it goes with all the standard superbowl fare. Wings, chili, italian sausage. this is a man party wine! Lots of alcohol kick and some oak...very tasty on its own as well.

This gives Ridge a run for its money at the same price point. Chocolate covered cherries, nice pepper spice. I paired it with buffalo chicken meatballs.

I bought a bottle of this Zinfandel, here, in The Netherlands, and didn't know that it was actually from California, so that explains the price. It was fairly pricey, in fact, which is the major down-side to it. That aside, I was thoroughly impressed by its bold, strong flavour. It has a deep red colour, and the dark-berried, smooth and fruity taste leaves a clean finish in your mouth. I drank it to accompany a vegetarian meal, actually, and was surprised that it did not overpower the winter vegetables, in fact I could gladly drink a glass or two on its own. Marvelous!

John Kautz, formerly a row crop farmer in Lodi who wisely invested in vineyard land there as well as in the Sierra Foothills, owns and operates Ironstone Vineyards along with his wife Gail and their four children. Steve Millier is winemaker. The winery produces California appellation wines and a Reserve line under the Ironstone label, including Bordeaux and Rhone varietals as well as Chardonnay, and a wine from the Symphony grape, Obsession.The family also owns the Sonoma Creek brand, and recently launched Dog Tail, a range of vintage and non-vintage California appellation varietals and blends. Bright ruby red with magenta highlights, this rich old vine Zinfandel is very viscous in the glass. Top notes of brambleberry, blackberry jam, braised beef, bacon, Asian Five Spice, and menthol are balanced with subtle undercurrents of barnyard funk. Full bodied and richly fruity with bright notes of cherry and raspberry on the palate, juicy acidity counteracts richness and encourages another sip. Oak tannins are supple and well-integrated. The finish is luscious with vanilla and berry notes. Enjoy with empanadas, coffee-bean coated rib eyes, baby back ribs, or crispy duck.
