Joel Gott Zinfandel California 2007
This is an expressive blend of classic, old zinfandel vineyards in the best grape-growing regions. Many of the vineyards are old, dry farmed, gnarly head-trained vines which produce concentrated fruit. This wine is dark ruby red color with supple and mouth filling tannins that lend to structure, depth, and an elegant balance. Classic currant, plum and sweet oak aromas lead to juicy black fruit, cherry, and spicy flavors with a long sweet and juicy finish.
Red fruit shake on the nose. This is really what I look for in a zinfandel. Not overly spiced, not sweet. Very clean taste.
Not as crazy about this as most people seemed to be - I was disappointed. Too light with no real body for me.
Smooth, medium bodied. blackberries, raisins and a little spicey. My wife and I really enjoyed this.
I have nothing to reference. This was my first serious Zin. It was a well balanced, well made wine, with lots of expressive fruit, but not overly jammy or sweet.
Smooth and mild for a zin. I generally prefer mine to be much bolder if I'm going to spend $20 on a bottle, though.
Great wine at a great price. Smooth finish and spicy...Joel Gott wines never seem to disappoint.
This has become my go to Zinfandel. Very elegant in style which is unusual for a Zin. Very bright fruit, nice finish and always a hit. A big zin without the overwhelming punch of a high alcohol content.

Tasting Notes - This wine is a classic Zinfandel with aromas of black cherry, blueberries, clove, and cola. The flavors are fresh, ripe berry and spice with juicy and soft tannins with a full mid palette and long finish.
