Macchia Zinfandel Lodi Luxurious Old Vine Rous Vineyard 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Jammy red berry fruit pops from the glass along with rich sweet, vanilla laden oak notes. On entry there’s a rush of big wild cherry that is rich and a bit soft, with a nice lightly creamy red fruited mid palate that shows off clean and fresh and fairly precise fruit picking up a little black mineral note on the good sneaky length finish. Lots of depth here and while this is fairly oaky the fruit seems to be able to handle it. 89pts

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.
