Plungerhead Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2012 Lodi Zinfandel is dark garnet in color with some wonderful old vine character aromas. There are notes of blackberry fruit, spice cake, fresh tobacco, white pepper, and fresh strawberry. In the mouth, you experience flavors of dried cranberry, blackberry, blackstrap molasses, brambly Zin fruit, toasted walnut, and hints of mocha laced cappuccino. This blend finishes with notes of dark chocolate, dried cherry, vanilla from American Oak, and deep toasted hazelnut from French Oak.

Plungerhead:
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.

Classic Zin fruit on the nose. In the mouth medium weight with red and black fruits that merge with spicy notes with enough acidity to satisfy. The finish is soft tannins and is medium in length. Overall a nice wine with good QPR. Hate the Zork!!!
