2012 Old Vine Zinfandel
Zinfandel •Tamura Vineyard
California: Lodi: Woodbridge
Medium ruby. Not opaque. Transparent.
Berries, cocoa, clove, eucalyptus, dusty earth. Wonderful incense.
Lots of juicy, deep, and layered Zinfandel flavors. Berries galore, but with a sense of balance. It never loses its fresh and delicious way amidst alcohol or sweetness - unlike so many other Zins. There’s a sweet, dusty earth inflection that’s reminiscent of a warm summer day in Lodi. This wine has a great sense of place and old vine concentration.
There’s an elegance here that makes it such a joy to keep drinking sip after sip. The wine finishes dry despite all of that fruit, which makes it a stellar match at the table.
Enjoy with burgers, ribs, and other delights of the grill. It likes a hard, dark chocolate as much as any red wine, too.
