Plungerhead is a brand of Zinfandel produced by The Other Guys, the hipster offshoot of Sebastiani family wine brands. The bottle features a ZORK closure (a red tear-tab stopper) that matches the Monty Python-esque  label image of the bespoke, mustachioed gent with the red plunger on his head. These affordable Zinfandels have gained popularity not only for their unique packaging, but also their value-driven quality.

  • Plungerhead Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Classic Zin fruit on the nose. In the mouth medium weight with red and black fruits that merge with spicy notes with enough acidity to satisfy. The finish is soft tannins and is medium in length. Overall a nice wine with good QPR. Hate the Zork!!! Read More

    Assertively oaky on the nose though this still allows the candied red fruit and sweet herbal aromas of the wine to emerge through the smoke and toasted oak notes. Bright and juicy on entry, this is easy to drink and it unfolds nicely on the palate with brisk red cherry and raspberry fruit nicely supported by oak that is surprisingly well integra... Read More

  • Marilyn Merlot is hardly something I'm interested in (although I love merlot).  I saw someone in Victoria has a collection of 12 bottles they were selling on Craigslist for $200 (including the metal rack).  Only a few of the bottles were empty.  Obviously, it is questionable that they were stored properly and I'd bet not.  But I was wondering if...

  • I have to say....so far....this is my favorite zinfandel! Love the fruit forward-non-peppery taste! For the price-you really can't beat it! It's so easy to drink, smooth-almost buttery!
