2013 Mohr Fry Zinfandel

California: Lodi: Woodbridge
Welcome back, St. Amant! And, congratulations on garnering another stellar score on your newest Zinfandel.
Today’s wine was awarded a 99 point score from wine educator, scholar and Master Sommelier Catherine Fallis. Catherine tasted this wine at a recent blind tasting that pitted several Zins against each other. This wine was the decisive winner, beating out wines of up to three times the price.
If you love bold California Zins as much as we do, you’ll love this bargain-priced wine. Just be sure to stock up!
Deep and dark with burgundy hues from edge to core.
Generous and fragrant, with bold blackberry, blueberry, cassis and wild strawberry preserve. Just beneath these, sweet spice, tobacco and black pepper add great balance.
Jammy and bold with flavors that mirror the nose. Add to these subtle aromas of dusty bramble and dried leaves.
Long and filled with dark fruit and spice that linger, as grippy tannins slowly introduce a mineral dryness.
This is a classic BBQ wine, but we’ll be pairing ours with some holiday prime rib with plenty of horseradish!
