Moss Roxx Ancient Vines Zinfandel 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

This is not your everyday wine. A big flavorful Zinfandel from Lodi’s half to century year-old vines. Mature round tannins accenting generous raspberry chocolate, mocha and spice. This zinfandel is truly a delectable expression of Lodi’s signature terroir.

The first thing you notice about the Moss Roxx is that it's not a wine that sucks the light out of the room like many of Zins do. It's lighter in color, much more like a solid Pinot Noir. The nose has hints of oak but nothing overpowering. Light and fruity much like its color, the aroma is also like no other Zin I've had before. The first thing that hits you is this floral taste that immediately leaves an impression on you. That is quickly subsumed by the fruit typical of Zins. You get that hint of blackberry or plums without the jammy consistency, all the while still trying to place exactly what flower it is your tasting. Then as you swallow, those naughty flavors show up, the leather and tar. Like all the other flavors present they tend to linger on the tongue and in your memory far longer than they should, yet they didn't assault you when you first tasted them. All of these flavors are amazingly balanced, not one of them is overpowering of the others. The tannins are almost non-existant, you don't feel like your mouth has been raped by a vacuum cleaner after tasting this wine either.
