Klinker Brick 2013
Aged in 100% American oak Big, slightly musky oak filled aromas of loamy soil, toasted oak and sweet mulberry fruit that is a little jammy and caramel driven greet the nose. Vanilla and charry wood flavors are followed by a big, plump mouthful of jammy red fruits in the mouth. Big, and bold and spicy, this shows a bit of aggressive wood on the palate with wood tannins adding some dryness on the finish even in the face of the rather sweet fruit here. Acids do keep this fresh enough but it is one the sweet and spicy side with wood dominating the finish. 85ptsAdd winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Wow, this is intensely briary and brambly on the nose. Super varietal with raspberry fruit, a hint of Thin Mints and black pepper. Rich, chewy and intense on entry, this is full throttle Zin with intense raspberry and wild strawberry flavors, wrapped up in some creamy oak with hints of hickory smoked meats. There's enough acidity here to keep things lively and the tannins are nice and firm if well covered by all this fruit. The finish is an explosion of varietal fruit, leaning towards the red cherry and strawberry end of the spectrum with gentle vanilla highlights and a lovely insinuation of herbal freshness. This holds its alcohol remarkably well. 91pts
Good daily Zin
Bold flavor from the get go. Soft mouthfeel with a sweet palate that continually builds to the finish. Notable oak backing with a hint of vanilla and noticeable alcohol. Well done.
The wine has a nice deep ruby color and the nose is pure Zinfandel with notes of black cherry, anise and cocoa powder. The taste is lovely, with some light floral notes amid rich ripe cherry and plum on the outset, transitioning into some nice licorice and baking spice midpalate. The finish is very smooth and dry, as the soft tannins lend plenty of depth and character to the long, dry finish.

The nose showed spicy red and blue fruit, herbal tea, cedar and wood tones, cinnamon and a hint of cherry tobacco. On the palate, it was as smooth as silk with weighty textures. Dark fruits, spiced cookie, brown sugar and medicinal cherry were made fresh by its streamlined acidity. The finish was lasting yet pleasantly fresh and fruity. (89 points)
Let's start this by saying OMG, this is a great wine. Once I smelled it I knew I would like it. Fills the nose with that deep berry aroma. Tastes of berry, sweet on the entire mouth, vanilla, cedar, nice soft pepper spice and a wonderful taste left in the mouth. This is one of the best I've tried. Wow!
Lots of cinnamon spice on the nose with cedar. Dusty, baking spice aromas along with dried herbs and white pepper. Wild blackberry and bramble fruits. Boysenberry as well. Suave entry on the palate and medium bodied. Very flavorful with lots of zesty cinnamon spice. White pepper, dried herb and great red berry fruit. Red and black raspberry. Bramble fruits and baking spice. Nicely balanced and you'd not know by feel that it's 15.8% abv. Nice and screams out for bbq. 88 pts. 5/1/13

This wine offers aromas of black cherries and fresh strawberries and toasty oak.On the palate, there are layers of dark fruit intermingled with sweet vanilla and spice. This wine has anincredibly smooth and long, lingering finish.
Our Old Vine Zinfandel comes from vines with an average age of 85 years. On the nose, aromatics black raspberry, cedar shavings are paired with pepper and spice. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, with berries and dark cherry flavors, balanced with firm structure and a silky texture. As always, this wine has a smooth and lingering finish.
This should appeal to fans of intensely ripe and jammy Zinfandels. The aromas of raisin and charred spice lead to zesty, slightly hot flavors baked cherry, tar and licorice. Drink now through 2018.
Succulent, juicy, dark berries give way to black pepper spice with notes of clove and nutmeg. Nice long, dry finish. Great with a summer barbecue, or a hearty autumn or winter stew.
With full, juicy flavors of cherries and plums and subtle nuance of mint and clove aromas to an elegant finish.
The 2010 vintage in Lodi was extraordinary with a long, cool growing season yielding beautiful, evenly ripened fruit. With aromas of black cherry, cedar shavings, vanilla and spice, this wine offers rich, supple flavors of cherries and plum, perfect balance and a long, smooth, lingering finish. Nutmeg, cardamom and pepper enhance an exotic nose but bright, dark fruits enhance a superb mouth filling experience. Our winemaker thinks this may be the vintage of the century! - WineryAppellation: Lodi (Mokelumne River)Varietal: Old Vine ZinfandelCooperage: American Oak 14 monthsHarvest Date: October 7, 2010Brix: 27.3 DegreesAlcohol: 15.8%Residual Sugar: .43PH: 3.72TA: .59 g/100ml
