Big intense dark fruit flavors, overpowers lighter foods. Not quite jammy but somewhat over the top . A little bit of heat in the nose and palate. Better on its own than with food. Would by again at sub $15.
Got this as a gift from dinner party guest. Finally opened it up. I was not expecting a fruit bomb based on the reviews. And that is true. But even after letting this sit for an hour, the oak still just overpowered everything for me. i started to get some red fruit come in, but it just never all came together. I did raise my rating a bit - started at 80. 82 seems right for my palate. Others may love this, as there are layers, but oak predominated for me. Maybe I should try another bottle. I Have loved many Lodi Zins. So if i Get another as a gift, I'll give it a go/
