Zynthesis Zinfandel Lodi Old Vine 2011

Member Review by militarybooks:

I have been drinking this wine in different ways over the past year. The best way is to decant it for about two hours, and then enjoy. It is good right out of the bottle, but has a better nose and is a tad more fruit forward and full-flavored after some exposure. Better still, if you want to drink alone, it is as good the next day, too. You will not be disappointed with this Zin, especially at this price. I just bought two cases at the 5-cent sale.

Not particularly bold for a zinfandel, almost tasted a little flat in the begininning. However after the bottle was open for about an hour (and consuming a glass with dinner), it seemed to develop more fruity flavor typical of an old vine zin, along with a little spice on the finish. Overall, it's nothing to write home about, but it's a decent table wine for the price, especially for those new to zins.

Got it during the 5cent sale at BevMo. Better than Menage a Trois, but not quite as good as Unruly Red. Unruly isn't on Snooth...hmmm. Unruly would be a 4.0

An amazing value for this wine. For less than $10 (at BevMo) this Zin is a great find. It is what you would expect from a full bodied Zin at half the price. Fill up your cellar on this one. I am going back for another case!

Not much on the nose, but a sip pleasantly surprises. Very light and bright, minimal tannins, chocolate and cherry notes. A crowd pleasing, gentle intro to Zin!
