Twisted Wine Cellars Zinfandel Old Vine 2014

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A little smoky, raw and coarse but with good, fresh berry fruit that shows nice spice character. This lacks some intensity and depth on the nose. A bit sweet upfront with pronounced acidity lurking under the RS. Round, easy to drink, if simple. Fresh and pleasant with a short finish. 83pts

Nice wine!! Wow,for 7 bucks, this works for me. Not really a Zin as we know it, lighter, cleaner....easy drinking. Starts with a slightly muted nose of cherries/strawberries that is nice. First taste really hits you with berries...lots of cherry really then finishes with a bit of spice and clean acid. Again, not very zin like....but a good wine and a great wine at this price. Think pi not meets zin!

I was surprised with its transparency when I poured my first glass. Normally Zins are deep and purple, this was clearer and had more of a ruby tone. On the nose it was very berry forward, lots of jammy notes and a bit of peppery spice. On the palate, a nice balance between acidity an jammy flavors. A little bit boring mid palate, but overall a great easy-drinking wine. I paired it with some dark, sea-salted chocolate. Delicious!

We use this great red zin for our sippin' wine before dinner every day...then we have a glass for dinner. We love it and you can't get a better wine for the money. It is reasonably full bodied with a good bold taste.

Twisted Old Vine Zin 2009 CA.... Cost $10 US dollars at Henry's Market. I would not recommend this wine. It has a tart aftertaste. Full bodied. The perfume scent and flavor lingers.

Medium-bodied with aromas of black cherry, red currant and a hint of spice. Concentrated ripe fruit of dark berry and black pepper on the palate.

Twisted 2011 Old Vine Zinfandel is medium-bodied with aromas of black cherry, red currant, blackberry bramble and a hint of spice. Concentrated ripe fruit, dark berry flavors and black pepper carry through to the palate while nicely balanced acidity and plush tannins lead to a lingering finish. - WineryAppellation: CaliforniaAlcohol: 13.5%Residual Sugar: 0.45 grams/100mlTotal Acidity: 0.55 grams/100mlpH: 3.61 ** SOLD OUT **
