Macchia Adventurous Zinfandel Linsteadt Vineyard 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This really shows intense perfumes on the nose filled with cocoa, vanilla, very tight spice notes all embedded in lovely brambly red fruit. Big round and yet well defined in the mouth with nice freshness to the fruit, this shows a hint of earthy rusticity along with the great depth of wild berry fruit that leads to a long, rich finish filled with great red berry fruit topped with with mineral and toast notes. 91pts

In Italian, “Macchia” means “the spot”. In Lodi, Macchia Winery has been earning a reputation as a spot where discriminating vino buffs can find small lots of high-quality vintages -- at some very reasonable prices. It is a tried-and-true strategy for making exceptional wines that Tim Holdener says is at the heart of his winemaking philosophy. Well aware of the potential for quality that was long ignored by many winemakers outside the Lodi area; the Holdeners make a variety of different Zinfandels, each sporting its own distinctive qualities.

16.5% by volume, but not overly alcoholic on the palate. It's a bruiser of a zin, big, bold and spicy. That's rather how I like them most times, so I very much enjoyed this one. Brambly, spicy and concentrated! - Tasted at Total Wine & More 4/3/10
