Editorial Reviews for Zinfandel Central Coast
Smells like I’m sawing wood, that slightly smoky note as the blade heats up, raw wood, piney and resiny. I don’t know why I would ever put this in my mouth after smelling this nose. A bit thick on entry and fairly tannic, this is moderately rich though a bit on the tough side with some thick flavors of plum and blackberry fruit embedded in raw, deep and sappy wood flavors. The finish is all toasty wood, vanilla, caramel and burnt marshmallows, though it is quite long it is also filled with woody tannins. 78pts

Grown and produced in Lodi, the Zinfandel capital of the world, this brilliantly ruby-hued Zin shows off enticing aromas of ripe blackberries and wisps of allspice. After thorough swirling, a sip reveals layers of blackberries and black cherry jam, touched by flavors reminiscent of caramelized brown sugar. This wine's bold flavor complements a silky texture and firm tannins on the finish. A touch of acid aids this wine's smooth rounded finish. - WineryCooperage:60% new French oak40% neutral oakTotal Acidity: 0.66 g/100mlTotal pH: 3.66Alcohol: 15.0%
