Montoya Vineyards Zinfandel Paso Robles 2009
Zins from Lodi tend towards the more fruit-driven style. Just a bit lighter than most, but this wine still retains the traditional great plum and raspberry tones. Mid-weight tannins round out the finish very nicely. Try it with BBQ ribs or spicy Moroccan lamb sausage.Add winemaker's notes

Zins from Lodi tend towards the more fruit-driven style. Just a bit lighter than most, but this wine still retains the traditional great plum and raspberry tones. Mid-weight tannins round out the finish very nicely. Try it with BBQ ribs or spicy Moroccan lamb sausage.
This fantastic old vine Zinfandel from Lodi is an absolute blockbuster of a wine. It has a lively nose of crushed blackberries with a slight hint of pepper. In the mouth, it develops into a rich, layered fruit bomb. Delicious flavors of blueberry and mocha fill you mouth, while subtle, toasty oak rounds out this giant of a wine. Some of the lush fruit, along with just enough fine-grained tannin, carry through the long, seductive finish. Drink this with some sweet and spicy beef pot stickers.
“Oh Lord stuck in Lodi again” sang John Fogerty in desperation. But in this case it’s a good thing! This brambly fairly large-scaled Lodi-sourced Zin has lot of rich up-front fruit but also the structure to support it. A favorite with BBQ sauced meats red or white.
