Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

My expectations were totally exceeded with this #lodi #cabernertsauvignon. Deep well of bramble fruit, some leather and subtle warm spices on the nose. Instead of a hot, jammy oaky mess, the palate features commendable restraint, bright acidity, structured black/blue fruit and peppery spice on the finish. How many Lodi Cabs do you see with 13.9% ABV? — a year ago

Fruit-forward, off-dry #lodi #chardonnay - good dose of tropical fruit, some honey, kind of interesting. — 4 years ago

Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel 2016

A #zinfandel that’s much better balanced and elegant than previous examples from #lodi that I’ve tasted. No egregious fruit bomb here or excessive oak and smoke. @Tom Pilla is exactly right, dialed back fruitiness, some earthy zip and a touch of acid. — 4 years ago

Roussanne 2015

beautiful notes of white flowers, apricots, some salinity, lemongrass, green melon, unripe pinneaple. disappointing in the palate, lack of acidity and high alcohol. however, works great with cheeses and pate #lodi #rousanne — 6 years ago

Prototype Lodi Zinfandel 2018

I concur with @Byron C Mayes - good QPR #lodi #zinfandel here. The 2018 vintage looks to be even hotter than 2019 at 15% ABV. Airing it out and a day in the wine fridge helped. Heady blackberry pie filling nose, syrupy mouthfeel from that high alcohol, coffee and dark chocolate flavors mid-palate. There’s less of that expected Zin spice but enough acidity to keep things interesting. Definitely recommended for ~$9 at Total Wine if Zin is your thing. — 2 years ago

Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This #lodi #cabernetsauvignon was pretty interesting - it took me a lot of sips to decide how much I liked it. Jammy nose with raisiny aroma and initial taste, layers of pepper, some tobacco and chocolate. It was only missing tartness for balance and a touch over-extracted or this would be easy 9+ — 4 years ago

Old Vine Zinfandel 2018

#lodi #zinfandel - blackberry jam, stewed plum aromas. Nicely concentrated in the mouth with the cooked dark fruit theme continuing, fair bit of acidity but more coffee, dark chocolate notes than I expected and very subtle spice. So many great old vine Zins out there in this price range - this one doesn’t stand out. #wsjwineclub — 3 years ago

Capital Z Lodi Zinfandel 2018

I didn’t have high expectations for this value #lodi #zinfandel. Blackberry jam aromas dominate. In the mouth there’s the expected rich briar fruit flood but it’s quickly followed by nice acid structure, dark chocolate and coffee notes mid-palate, faint warming spices and tongue-coating tannins on the long finish. It is unexpectedly quaffable and a dandy value at $11 from #wsjwineclub — 3 years ago
