Oak Ridge Winery Zinfandel Lodi Moss Roxx Ancient Vine 2007

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine is a lovely deep, inky purple color, transitioning to bright ruby along the edges. The aroma is a blend of anise, ripe plum, and a lovely bit of sweetness that I find very hard to pin down. The taste has a good bit of smokiness, oak and sweet, ripe fruit on the front end, though it's certainly not the explosive "fruit bomb" that so many zins have become today. The taste is well balanced throughout and provides for a wonderfully smooth, mellow finish. Certainly, a more classic zin somewhat in the style that used to be more common in the 1990s, that makes it such a delight for pairing with food.
