The Zin Lodi on Snooth

  • This is the time of the year that you see a slew of rosé wine reviews, as the summer is known as pink wine season. This is underscored by the fact that most wineries release their rosés in the spring no doubt in an effort to latch on to the popular sentiment. For years, I refused to buy into to the “summer means rosé” mindset as I firmly believe... Read More

  • Wow, 17.4%.  And it's not hot?  That is great.I have posted here in the past that one of the best wine experiences that I have ever had was a David Bruce Zin from, to the best of my recollection, the early '70s that also came in at over 17%.I've learned a bit about the Martinellis is the last few days and the story about the Jackass Vineyard is ...

  • I'm not a wine taster.  I'm a wine drinker.  I've been drinking wine for 10 years.  I'm bad at the use of descriptors.  I don't taste and spit.  I taste and swallow.  The back of my throat tells me more about about a wine than my tongue does.  I can also tell much about a wine based on its color.I like most varietals, but my favorite varietal is...

  • 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 mushroo... Read More

  • 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

    Forum post in the topic A Journey through Lodi


  • 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...
