This 2009 old vine Zinfandel from Lodi California brings fantastic fruitiness with a unique palate that shouldn't be missed. Plungerhead delivers a Zinfandel lovers Zinfandel, plain and simple.
The nose was tempting with molasses, pepper, mint and orange rind. The palate brought cherry, rich blackberry, strawberry, cinnamon, oak and subtle pepper. The tannin and structure are very good. The finish was quite sweet with blueberry and plum. I particularly enjoyed this Zinfandel for two reasons: its toning down of pepper in the palate versus most other Zinfandels, and the fantastic structure, where I was able to catch the same palate elements at about the same time every time. This wine is a keeper. Cheers!
