The Other Guys Zinfandel Lodi Plungerhead 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This medium-plum colored Zinfandel is very forward with rich and sappy French oak notes, with ripe raspberry and bramble notes up front. The core of the wine is very robust with dark fruit including black cherry and cassis followed by generous and integrated spice flavors of star anise, cardamom, licorice with ample coffee flavors on the backside which finishes with the classic old vine, resinous finish.

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. 
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

I don't think I'd buy this wine again, it was overly oaky and the fruit seemed flat.

Old world style. Not as fruit forward as I have come to expect from Lodi zin. Good spice and not much or tannin. This is a pleasant smooth drinking wine.

Nose full of baking spice and an odd seaweed tone. On the palate, dark, brambly fruit. Red berries, sage and pepper. It's nice and dry. Finished a bit raisiny. - Tasted at Schreiner's Winers blind zin tasting 9/18/10

Wonderful zin! Very robust with notes of raspberry and bramble, black cherry and cassis and integrated flavors of spice, like cardamom. Nice coffee flavors on the back end. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 1/9/10

This wine is the perfect match to St. Louis style ribs with a side of cole slaw or a hearty bowl of turkey chili paired with jalapeno cornbread muffins. Also try this alongside your favorite Mexican dish, such as sizzling chicken fajitas with cilantro and lime.

In the mouth, this Zinfandel has flavors of dried strawberry, dark raspberry, plum sauce, cedar, and pomegranate, with hints of white pepper and cherry liquor. The finish is sweet fruit, toasty oak, and lingering warm spices.
