Jammy fruits on the nose with lots of plum and crushed berry tones with a toffeed edge and notes of cedar and slate in the back ground. Big and soft with drying tannins and adequate acidity. A bit dull though there are sweet roasted strawberry tones accented with a hint of black pepper. A bit short as well. 83pts

Dark purple color. Medium to heavy bodied with a significant spice and a great deal of fruit. Blackberry and raspberry notes with well balanced tannins. Long finish. This is a great wine try if you have never ventured into the Lodi region.

odd woman out on this, it looks like. Classic Zin, in my opinion. Sour cherry and blueberry aromas, with a peppery note. Nice plum and blueberry flavors with a silky texture. Spicy aftertaste of clove, pepper, and allspice. Excellent QPR.

I've never met a Lodi that I didn't like, but I found this bottle to be extremely sweet tasting. I wouldn't have figured it to be a Zin in a blind taste test.

OK, so, I'm going to disagree. This wine is NOT lush, NOT concentrated, NOT big, &c. But, it has an asphalty nose that I love (admittedly in S. Rhones, but...) it has a balance of fruit suited to its tannins and acid, and I find it pleasant to sip, and a great Zin with food. So there. Gimme more!

Soft, round, spicy and jammy with voluptuous overtones of plums and blueberries, this wine lives large and irresistible in the here and now.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar ReviewRated 90-91Deep ruby. Jammy raspberry and blackberry on the nose, with notes of fresh rose and baking spices adding complexity. Sappy dark berry flavors show liqueur-like intensity and depth but are also enlivened by juicy acidity. Impressively fresh, focused zinfandel with excellent finishing lift and thrust, leaving behind floral pastilles and smoky minerals.Wine Tasting NotesThe Lodi is particularly bright and fruity with a soft, ripe roundness and well balanced acidity that should make this wine a pleasure to consume by itself or with a great meal.
