Macchia Infamous Barbera Amador County Cooper Ranch 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Plums, spice, earth, and black berry fruits all come together on the complex if earthy nose. Rich on entry with early soft tannins and juicy acids supporting the core of nice meaty plum and spicy red berry fruit on the palate. This is a bit short on the finish but the light texture makes this fun to drink. 87pts

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.
