The Zin Lodi on Snooth

  • There’s nothing quite like having wine friends. After all, our mutual topic of interest is a social lubricant. But there’s so much more to it, as Snooth’s recent blogger trip will attest. Earlier this month we had the opportunity to explore one of the country’s oldest and up-and-coming wine regions: Lodi, California. It still amazes me that a si... Read More

  • I would never argue against Zinfandel with burgers.  Works every time.Burgers in this household are intentionally served as simple, low-cost meals.  So, they are made from the "standard" packaged 80/20 ground beef.  I like catsup (I'm brand agnostic.) on my burgers, which, of course, introduces sugar to my sandwich.  (If we have french fries wit...

  • There were three of us, or actually 2 1/2 since my wife didn't drink much and doesn't like whites. The burgers were going to be 50/50 bacon/beef, which opened a world of possibilities so we decided to go all-American.Halcón Vineyards Prado to start, a 50.50 Marsanne/Rousanne blend that would have gone really well with the mushroom I had but was ...

  • Mark, good points about the pricing for sure.  There's a lot of really good zin in that price range, including Talty and, with the club discount, Mauritson's Rockpiles.  On the other hand, Lodi Zin is pretty well established.  And those Carlisles, Bedrocks, Rockpiles, really are underpriced because they frequently sell out.  In fact, Carlisles h...

  • I did not have any of the wines for the VT, but I enjoyed listening to the conversation and watching the chat.  I was sipping also--a Hungarian Furmint that I have to say was pretty pedestrian, but for the price I did not have any big expectations.I've always been under the impression that I was the outlier on Viognier.  I just don't care for it...

  • OT - Viognier is one of those grapes that really tends to disappoint more than enchant. It smells nice and you think you're in for a treat but it's never got quite enough acidity, length, complexity or flavor. Qupe makes a decent one, but it's not extraordinary. Those from the N. Rhone are the standard for some people but I just think there are ... Read More

  • OT, I agree.   For my palate, the zin was too hot and big. I won't say more on that, as I am not usually a zin fan for the most part.I had the Viognier as well, and although you say this grape needs to be blended, I have had few single varietals that are decent.  It is hard to do... it does (and should IMO)  typically exhibit a floral nose, foll...

  • 3hrs later the tannins have tamed but the heat is overpowering on the Lodi Zin, kinda disappointing. The Viognier was a bit OTT for me personally. Too much fruit. But then agin it's Viognier. It needs to be blended with  something. Fun VT though the conversation was predominately between the bloggers on site which was kinda strange. Anyone who h... Read More

  • Apologies for the delayed reply on this thread. It has been a busy month! EMark -- Not picky at all. I appreciate the kind attention. Great points on both fronts. I published the group's travel log today which should round out our trip quite nicely. One stop that I really wanted to mention but didn't:  Oak Farm Vineyards. This place deserves a s... Read More

  • Update, day 3, part 1I must start this post by saying that I don’t generally gravitate toward Zins, but yesterday’s visits may have helped to change my mind. As wine journalist Randy Caporoso said, there’s a reason why nobody ever tried to pull out these old vines. The fruit they produce is just too good.The day began with visits to four differe...
