Plungerhead Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel 2011
Plungerhead Lodi Zinfandel is dark purple in color with a lot of old vine character aromas. The aromas are reminiscent of black cherry, blackberry compote, aged balsamic reduction, earthy mushroom, musky leather, and smoky bacon. On your palate, you will see flavors of sweet blackberries, black pepper, cherry hard candy, plum preserves, coriander, roasted French Oak, and hints of leather, cinnamon bark, and mint. On the finish, there are notes of candied toasted pecan, cherries jubilee, smoked sea salt, and dried blueberries.
Plungerhead is a brand of Zinfandel produced by The Other Guys, the hipster offshoot of Sebastiani family wine brands. The bottle features a ZORK closure (a red tear-tab stopper) that matches the Monty Python-esque label image of the bespoke, mustachioed gent with the red plunger on his head. These affordable Zinfandels have gained popularity not only for their unique packaging, but also their value-driven quality.
Editorial Reviews for Plungerhead Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel
Assertively oaky on the nose though this still allows the candied red fruit and sweet herbal aromas of the wine to emerge through the smoke and toasted oak notes. Bright and juicy on entry, this is easy to drink and it unfolds nicely on the palate with brisk red cherry and raspberry fruit nicely supported by oak that is surprisingly well integrated. There are some gentle tannins lending support and acids that are bright, if integrated, bringing a hint of orange rind to the appellate. There’s a little toasty pie crust thing going on here and that turns into a full blown vanilla note on the backend as this transitions to a clean if modest finish. Easy going with nice balance and solid fruit. 85pts
