Macchia Petite Sirah Lodi Rebellious 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark black cherry and sweet oak aromas greet the nose picking up a touch of VA and complicating notes of dark plum and vanilla. This is lovely on entry with super fine balance, full base of tannins and good acids but this still comes off a little soft and weight. The midpalate is filled with earthy plum fruit, nuanced oak, a little peppery spice and floral notes in the mouth with wild cherry fruit on the back end. This is a little rough on the finish, though it does show a lovely lingering sour plum tone with a hint of coffee on the finale. 88pts

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.
