Clean with a nice oaky streak running through the sweet, and slightly medicinal red fruit and pomegranate inflected nose. This has a gentle vegetal note that works well as a counterpoint to the balanced fruit and oak notes. On the palate this is smooth and balanced with fresh, complex flavors of red berry fruits, baby powder perfume, and hints of wood spice. This is decidedly middleweight with a transparent feel and hard acids that keep this fresh and lively. It’s a very drinkable, varietally correct bottle of Zinfandel. 91pts

Clean and juicy but somewhat subdued for a Zin, both on the nose and on the tongue, but just enough acid to keep it from being flabby. Like a good mix of red and darker fruits in a somewhat aromatic light syrup. Pleasant but subtle medium finish, again more subtle aromatic than peppery. Refreshing and drinkable but not memorable.

For this intense wine, Gott sources the fruit from some of the best growing areas for Zin - Lodi, Amador and Napa Valley. Deep ruby color, aromas of vanilla, anise, wild strawberries and cherries swirl from the glass along with a hint of milk chocolate. On the palate, tart red raspberry joins the flavor profile and lifts the wine to a mouthwatering, refreshing level. Impressive and irresistible!

Zinfandel of this quality and price is hard to come by. Here’s a fine example of the grape at its best: blackberries, black cherries and fresh pepper nuances all backed up with firm yet approachable tannins.

A great Zinfandel for the price. Itrsquo;s dry and elegant, with a mouthfeel somewhere between Pinot Noir and Merlot. Really balanced, with soft tannins and acids framing oak-tinged berry and spice flavors. With 30,000 cases produced, it should be easy to find.

The 2006 Zinfandel is a welcome edition to a long line of canrsquo;t-miss wines from famed California winemaker Joel Gott. Plush and richly textured, this wine boasts copious amounts of juicy red and black fruit flavors. Superb with steaks, pork roast and other savory meat dishes, yet with so much fruit I can easily imagine serving it with pizza and wings.

Our Zinfandel vineyards are in the top growing regions in California: Napa, Sonoma, Lodi and Amador. This wine reflects the soil and environment of each distinct location. The vineyards in Lodi and Amador are old head-trained vines, which are dry-farmed and produce deeply concentrated fruit. This fruit combined with the depth of Napa Valley fruit and the spiciness from cool Sonoma County, creates a blend that truly shows California Zinfandel at its finest. Dark ruby red color with supple, mouth filling tannins that offer lively acid structure and an elegant balance. Classic currant, plum and sweet oak aromas lead to ripe berries, cherry, and spicy flavors with a long, sweet and juicy finish.
