Thirty years ago, Robert Mondavi set out to establish a wine culture in America by putting great California wine on every table. Invigorated by the success of Robert Mondavi Winery in the Napa Valley, in 1979 he established the Woodbridge Winery near his childhood home of Lodi, California.
Pretty good for the price range, smooth finish fruitbomb cherry, blackberry, blueberry
So what we have here is a quality 2000 Zinfandel from Lodi (that most people won’t give the time of day since the label says Woodbridge on it). Great mellow Zin with only 13.5% alcohol, not the normal killer from Amador or El Dorado Counties in California. But with the lower alcohol content it really opens up the Zinfandel fruit. What you will taste on this one is the following: Blackberries, ripe raspberries, slight black currant, and a mellow spice on the finish. So if you subtle (or not so subtle) wine snobs can get past the Woodbridge label you will be in for a bottle that will be empty by the end of the evening (even if you are alone).
Very good Merlot for this price range.
External Reviews for Woodbridge Cabernet Sauvignon 187
A delicious balance between elegant fruitiness and rich complexity. Soft, silky black cherry and plum flavors from Merlot, with deep blackberry and spice character of Cabernet.
Peppery spice notes - a unique Zin personality trait - that infuse the rich dark fruit character.
Enticing notes of ripe plums and berries weave through the aromas and silky flavors of our Woodbridge Merlot. Nuances of spices and toasty vanilla, from aging in small oak barrels, linger on the soft finish.
