Macchia Flirtatious Late Harvest Zinfandel 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

5.5 grams sugar per liter RS Candied red fruit on the nose is wrapped in clove laced holiday spice. This is modestly sweet on entry with early juicy red fruit that are nicely balanced and recall cut red cherries little bit of red licorice rope, and a touch of powdered sugar. There’s a nice touch of tannin on the finish and this really does show nice balance though it is a bit simple. 88pts

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.
