St. Amant Winery Zinfandel Lodi Old Vines Mohr-Fry Ranch Vineyard 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit of stemmy, bright on the nose with a hint of dried straw and some mineral notes accenting the core of spicy, sweet berry/cherry fruit on the nose. Rich and bright in the mouth with a touch of rounding sweetness supporting chocolatey, dried plum and baked blackberry flavors that show hints of peppery spice on juniper on the backend. Big and juicy with lots of jammy raspberries on the finish, this has power and good clarity. 88pts

Mineral, dark and inky on the nose with blue fruit that’s a little funky with carob top notes. This is way plummy on entry, with ashy spice notes in a very smooth, powerful way with fine density. It’s a wine that expresses spicy Zin berry fruit well, but it is soft, and a little creamy, even with lots of ripe tannins lending a peppery edge to the core of fruit here. The finish shows both sweetness and heat along with spice notes, a bit much for me. 88 points

Very nice zin. Soft tannin, good mouth feel. Baked cherries on the swirl; currants & coffee on the palate. A good one to sip while eating chocolates (or chocolate cake).

We had this over the weekend and it was delicious. Very smooth with a little peppery hint. Lots of fruit flavors. Rich but not heavy.

Big, bold, chewy, and spicy from Lodi. This wine is an example of why I love Zinfandel. Serve with a heavily seasoned steak and it will hold its own.

This rich, chewy Zin is great for those who like their wine full-bodied and with lots of ripe fruit flavors.
