Grist Vineyard Zinfandel 2018

Pleasantly balanced #zinfandel. More subtle than expected bramble fruit nose. Beautifully restrained Zin on palate - succulent acidity, some vanilla, toasty oak notes, characteristic spice on the finish. — 10 months ago

Lytton Springs Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Blend 2018

Young quality #zinfandel #petitsirah blend by Ridge - blackberry pie filling, vanilla and other sweet spices on the nose; beautifully balanced fruit and acidity ending in grippy tannins. Methinks this wine would be better laid down for 5+ years. — 3 years ago

Small Batch Bourbon Barrel Aged California Zinfandel 2018

#bourbonbarrelaged #zinfandel
I can smell the bourbon barrel used to age this wine. The palate has
#junkinthetrunk, black fruit, and smoke. Be sure to decant this wine. Not the best pairing with chili half-smokes. 8.5 out of 10

Dry Suisun Valley White Zinfandel 2019


I really like this for so many reasons. #1 the bottle/jug. #2 the oldskool retro label #3 it’s a dry white #zinfandel #4 it has so much typicity of Zin on the nose and on the palate I find it somewhere between a #rosé and a light red. — 2 years ago

Fun, had me stoked for a Rubired review (same jug bottling), but down with White Zin too.

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. — 3 years ago

Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2017

Revisited one of my old favorites. This #zinfandel is very dark in the glass with deep purple hues. The body is heavy and compact with a somewhat fresh and cassis like. Tasting a savory component as the seed. Mildly tannic, moderate acid. #wine — 3 years ago
