Light menthol laced brambly fruits on the nose are fresh and crisp with sandy soil tones and bright tones of raspberries. On the palate this is rather restrained with plenty of bright red fruit gently backed with subtle spice tones. There are some smoky and menthol tinged tones across the mid-palate before this finishes with soft tannins and pure fruit flavors on the surprisingly long, juicy finish. 87pts

Blueberry jam on the nose, a very fruity wine here. Sweet, ripe and lush fruit bursts out. Very drinkable, low tannins and a nice blueberry finish. Great for the price, but possibly a little 1 dimensional for those looking for more structure (and less fruit).

Very drinkable now. Lots of tastes, maybe a little jamy (cherry) to some, but I like it. Price is great---under $9 at Costco. Nice smooth finish

  • Winemaker's Notes:

    Notes: Dark Cherry Red with a violet rim. Offers aromas of wild strawberry compote, chocolate and cracked pink peppercorns. Layers of dried fruits, lively mineral and subtle smoke accents the ripe but judicious fruit. This wine displays dynamic acidity and silky mouth-feel. These striking qualities epitomize Old Vine Zinfandel’s distinctive "of the earth" elegance. Cameron Confidential: The winery we purchased this from is a unique operation preferring to make a variety of “component wines” from various vineyards and varietals and then blending upwards of 40 different wines per year from those components. There is not tank larger than 8,000 gallons in the winery to facilitate this sort of small Lot winemaking and the guy who assembles the final blends is truly a master making a range of wines from $250 a bottle Napa Cabs to $18 a bottle California red blends. Sister wines include our Lot 86 Lodi Zinfandel, Lot 89 Lodi Syrah, and Lot 90 Lodi Tannat – also exceptional values.
