Xyzin Old Vine Zinfandel 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Almost black peppery on the nose and decidedly spicy in a subtle and nuanced way with some sweet oak emerging with air along with aromas of sour plum and strawberry jam. Smooth and focused on entry with nice tension in the mouth and fine clarity on the palate. This is light and bright in the mouth but with plenty of Zinfandel muscle to show off. the flavors recall the strawberry of the nose with well integrated wood spice and a fine mineraly vein that lends this some green peppercorn spice right through the fairly long finish. A bit beefy in the mouth, this reminds a bit of Syrah but if really very well balanced and shows a wonderfully refined and detailed finish. 89pts

My Rating 85: Disappointing Zinfandel. Although well balanced somehow on the sweet side with light body. Nose is well balanced but not complex at all. Boogle beats the crap out of this one!
