Mccay Cellars Contention Lodi Zinfandel 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Oaky on the nose, lending a hickory nut and juniper tone to the gamy fruit. While a touch soft, on entry this turns out to have great acidity, making it much more lively in the mouth than the nose suggests, showing fine black currant and wild raspberry in a juicy style, with soft tannins. While the finish is a bit short, it is powerful and fresh, with light dusty and leathery soil tones. 89 points
