Macchia Lodi Native Zinfandel Noma Vineyard 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dry farmed on the east side Inky, powerful, and dark on a nose filled with black fruit, spicy, black pepper, and a whisper of herb. As bright and juicy as this may be it is undoubtedly the most powerful wine of the lineup. Filled with spicy dark, dried berry fruit, this offers an avalanche of spice on the long finish which is packed with candied blackberry fruit, and while it remains clear and fresh on the palate, this is more typical Lodi Zin. Fabulous, but less elegant than the rest of the line-up. 92pts

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.
