Harney Lane, Old Vine Zinfandel 2014, Lizzy James Vineyard, Lodi, California
Tasting Note: This Lodi zin’s lovely bouquet and plush mouth feel will make you want to snuggle up with someone you love.
Deep-intensity purple in color this wine has an aromatic nose of black plum, raspberry, black cherry, white blossom and vanilla and clove baking spice.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied zinfandel delivers ripe fruit flavors suggested on the nose bolstered by supple, medium-plus tannin and a velvety, medium-plus finish.
There is balance between the fruit and alcohol such that you barely perceive the latter.
And it’s an old-vine zinfandel to boot, which explains the flavor concentration.
A zin to repeat.
Bottle Note: Lodi Rules Certified Green Sustainable Wine Growing.
