Oak Ridge Winery Zinfandel Lodi Ancient Vine 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense, Blackberry, Cherry, Medium-bodied.Lodi, CA- A robust wine packed with fat, ripe fruit--cherries, cassis, blackberries--yet enough acidity to give it lift. Smoky, cola flavors that do not overpower. Finished with ripe tannins. A terrific wine from an underrated region

Nice dark color. Very modest nose. Medium weight on the palate. Lots of berry fruit with, maybe some plum. Fruitiness may be interpreted as sweetness, but I don't think it's sweet. Slight tannin around the edges of the tongue. Medium and pleasnt finish. Good wine for the price--US$9.99 at Total Wines.

Typical Zinfandel nose of fruit and spice, but was very smooth and easy drinking, without the typical spice on the finish. Balanced structure, fruit forward with a hint of blueberry, but not jammy.

It's on the verge of being a "wet" wine. It's very sweet, has a smoky and oaky smell. It's alright. But not the best zin.

A nice lower-alcohol Zin (13.95%) that's approachable, but very simple. Underwhelming nose of chocolate powder and berry tart. The palate is much nicer, with notes of dark ripe berries, a bit of oak-ey vanilla, and a few hints of spice toward the back end. It won't replace my current go-to Zin at this price range, but definitely not a disappointing alternative. 86pts.
