Lolonis Zinfandel California 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A full and rich Zinfandel with distinctive flavors of cassis, blackberry, plum, and black peppercorn and a background note of spicy oak. A great zin for serving with barbecued meats, such as ribs or salmon, or vegetables, such as portobello mushrooms or grilled eggplant. Will drink best 2008 through 2010, or decant for immediate drinking. Grapes are organically grown on 40-year-old vines on 8x14 spacing with bi-lateral cordons. Cover crops and leaf pulling are practiced to promote optimal vineyards conditions. Ladybugs, not chemicals, are used to combat pests.

Spicy, fruity wine with a marvelous warm aroma. At the risk of sounding like a nut, I have to say that I'd wear a perfume that smells like this wine.

Sleek and light, this fragrant zin has tart cherry flavors tightly bound to its dusty tannin. Lovely to drink with eggplant parmigiana.

Defines the briary, brambly, wild side of Zinfandel. Bone dry and tannic, its flavors are of dusty mulberries, loganberries, bitter cherries, root beer, balsamic and tobacco, with notes of wintergreen and white pepper. Drink with flank steak with a chimichurri sauce.

Ripe and flavorful, with lots of complex earthy blackberry, tar, raisin and herbal notes, turning smooth and complex on the finish. Given the firm tannins, it's best to cellar short-term. Try through 2002.

A fairly-priced, high quality Zinfandel, this offering, from an organically cultivated vineyard, exhibits a dark ruby color, and delicious, up-front raspberry/cherry and assorted berry-like fruit intermixed with copious quantities of spice and pepper. On the palate, the wine is supple, round, medium to full-bodied, and graceful. With a charming, seductive personality, this middle-weight Zin (the alcohol is a reasonable 13.5%) is symmetrical, harmonious, and a good value. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Ripe and generous, this effusive wine has appealing if somewhat Port-like plum, blackberry and spice flavors that lingers nicely on the round finish. Drink now through 2003.
