Complex - dark fruit but not jammy. More like a blend than a straight zin. Tannins well integrated, nice finish. This shoudl go for a few more years but opened nicely. Went well with grilled, smoked pork roast.

This one hits the jackpot. Soft,creamy mouthful with medium weight but a boatload of flavor. Exotic berries and bramble, blossoming into a raspberry parfait made with crema Catalana, but without the sugar. Just when you are thinking of pouring this over vanilla ice cream, it finishes with just enough acidity to lift it over your already overworked palate. This a California gem that could be made nowhere else in the world but Sonoma. The stuff of pilgrimage. One of the stations of the cross.

super ripe and sweet dark fruit. Too ripe and primary. Singular. Like over done amarone.

Very good. A Zin with tannin, depth and structure. The depth and balance of a Syrah. A Zin with the attributes of a fine Rhone.

Blackberry and blueberry in a full-bodied, rich style. Fine tannins and acidity lend tension.

2009 Jodar Zinfandel Sierra Foothills

7/4/2015 - srh Likes this wine: NR

[This vintage carried the "El Dorado" appellation.]

N: Black grapes, blackberries (some spice?) Notes of alch?

P: NICELY balanced with sweetish fruit on the front; MF body but sans richness. Still some dusty tannins + a touch of astringency on the long but faint finish. While this claret-styled (at least now) wine is still drinking nicely, I suspect it's a yr if not 2 past its prime.

Rose petal and some strawberry on the nose. Very ripe and flavorful with a rounded mouthfeel and some heat. Powerful brambly spice flavor w good length and again some heat on the finish. Did not decant.

Delicious! Decanted for about three hours and had with ribs on July 4th. Well made, not overly extracted, but plush and mouth filling. Good varietal character and decent finish. Not particularly complex, but yum.

Decanted for 45 minutes and drank over the next 90 minutes. I would give this 2 hours if I drank the next bottle any time soon. Red fruits with spice and nice acidity.

Typical sweet, fruit forward WS style. Nose is a bit muted, although I didn't give this a decant. Sweet, ripe blackberry and fig on the palate. Tannins emerge on a slightly tart finish. I've really enjoyed this vineyard in the past, but the 2012 is good and not great. Enjoyable but not especially nuanced or polished.

Dark ruby red, with a distinctive and pleasant perfumed nose of overripe peaches dominating dark raspberry. Medium body, pleasantly focused, and juicy on the finish.

7/4/2015 - nectar14 Likes this wine: NR

My favorite of the 6-wine flight. Pleasant and balanced red and dark red fruit, showing a certain class and focus, good length, freshness, and a bit of grippy tannin on the finish. Many compare Etna reds to a theoretical Zin/ Pinot blend; I'd compare this Zin (favorably) to an Etna red. Score? something like a 90-91

Nose showed a fair amount of quality oak, but blew off and raspberry/brambly notes followed. Shows good focus and restraint, and would be another solid summer BBQ or steak wine.
