Nutty oak and almond aromas greet the nose over a base of plum and black cherry fruit. Rich, chewy and dark in the mouth with too much wood and vanilla for my palate though it is fairly well integrated with the black cherry fruit on the palate. The finish turns a bit candied again and shows both plenty of vanilla cream and increasingly aggressive wood tannins. 85pts

Dripping with juice. Toasty caramel is prominent on the nose. This is a smooth wine on the sweeter side with dominant cherry/strawberry and caramel flavors. Alcohol is nicely in balance. Something about it just makes you want to keep picking up the glass. For $15, just go ahead and try it.

Deep ruby in color, intoxicating aroma of dark berries. The taste is incredible full of rich deep flavor of cassis and a bit of spice. The flavor lingers and aftertastes of coffee and a slight floral taste. This is a bold satisfying wine sure to please many Cab, Malbec and other jam packed wine lovers.

not much of a nose, some pepper and plum, got a weird artificial butter taste at first, heavy body and soft tannins

The color is somewhat lighter than your typical Lodi Zin with a certain amount of opacity. The nose is rich in fruit, with sweet ripe berries intermingled with cherries and plums, balanced by a bit of dusty spice. The taste is surprisingly not as fruit forward as I would have expected, in fact it's like a delayed fuse as the first taste seems to be dominated by smoke, cedar and some spice, then an explosion of fruit midpalate, with rich plum and blackberries, fading into some peppery spice note on the finish. The tannins are pretty big in this wine, supporting a very tight, dry finish. This wine is a bit high in alcohol at 16%, but you'd never know it from the aroma or taste (I suppose that can be a good thing!).

Minerals on the nose, with currant, rustic red berry and some underbrush. Hints of sage. Nice vibrancy on the palate. Good balance and zesty fruit. Brambly berry fruit, dried herbs, pepper, and some roasty coca notes. Nice acid and relaxed tannins. Juicy on the palate. Nice performer for a basic designate old vine and good PVR. 88 pts.

CaliforniaRenwood Zinfandel is a true red wine gem from one of the top wineries in California. Situated in the picturesque Amador County of northern California, Renwood Winery is surrounded by the rolling hills and rushing streams of California's gold country. Renwood was established in 1993 and is one of the most respected wine producers in the Sierra Foothills, specializing in Zinfandel. Renwood Winery is a grateful steward of the land, reflected in its commitment to environmentally friendly and sustainable farming and production techniques. Renwood has long been renowned for its robust, richly flavored Zinfandels, many of them made from old, dry-farmed vines. Renwood Zinfandel is described by the winemaker as "a fresh and youthful wine. Strawberry and raspberry fruit aromas, with just a hint of oak. The flavors are soft and flavorful with an appealing tang on the finish. This wine is reminiscent of old time Zinfandel, where the fruit is prominent and the wine's character is very honest with great drinkability. Not serious or complicated, and with none of the heavy influence of oak or overzealous cellaring, it is a great sipping wine." With beautiful balance and a long, smooth finish, it's the perfect American red wine for Thanksgiving!Enjoy Renwood Zinfandel with your Thanksgiving turkey, or with roast chicken, BBQ ribs, grilled vegetables and cheeses.

Dark ruby in color, the bouquet of this wine consists of cranberry, allspice, nutmeg and blackberry. With immediate flavors of ripe berry fruits, holiday spices follow and then lead into chalky tannins and a touch of vanilla bean.

This wine has a nose of exotic spices and dried fruits. This classic old vine character also exhibits notes of lavender. On the palate, full in body and very ripe, the dark fruit on the first taste melds into mildly spicy fruit with a hint of roasted coffee towards the end. Overall, this dusty and bold wine offers ample flavor. - Winery
