Food Pairings for Oak Ridge Winery Zinfandel California Gnarled Vine
A very nice, very flavorful yet moderately priced zin. I will look for it in my area.
spicy/blackberry jam scent a little thin, buttery has a sweet, smoky finish
If you like sweet Zinfandel, this is the wine for you - I think this is way more fruit than necessary - very disappointing - did not even finish the bottle - it came highly recommended so I guess I was expecting more. I have another bottle and a bottle of the reserve. I am hoping the next two are better. I will give both more time in the cellar for certain. You can also do much better for the price. I paid $16 and their $8 bottle of Gnarled Vine is better.
Needs to decant and open up a bit prior to tasting. Full berry flavor - a bit on the fruity side - quite smooth and a wonderful finish - good everyday drinking wine for the price. Just had another bottle and it was way to fruity - there is no consistency with this wine - this batch was way to sweet.
Good $30 Zinfandel - not crazy about their other wines but this, they got it right - sweet but just the right amount - lots of berries with a great nose - this was the last of 4 Oak Ridge wines we tried and was suprised - pleasantly - the others were ordinary - this was a step above - $30 a bit much, $15-20 is more like it but a good wine none the less.
Smooth, very berry, a little sweet. Great as a dessert
If you like "Zins".. then for the quality and the price you can't go wrong. About $8.00 a bottle, its very smooth, nice and fruity. Its a bit lighter than most Zins I purchase so if you like those heavy wines then this one is not for you. I would rate this wine 4 stars.
<p>This cheerful table wine from Lodi California, with flavors of green apple and yellow peach, is an unusual blend of Viognier, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Symphony. OVZ is the winery's abbreviation for "Old Vine Zinfindel."</p>
