BNA Wine Group Nanna’s Short Cake Zinfandel 2014, Lodi California 


My Rating 87 Points.   

Price $15. 


Inky in color with a wide brick/ ruby rim.
Nice fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, licorice, wood, vanilla, sweet cherries, strawberry jam, tobacco, spices, peppercorn, chocolates, dark coffee, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead and beef jerky.

Full-bodied, but not bold, with medium plus acidity and long legs. Rich and jammy.

Dry on the palate and extremely fruity with blackberries, sweet strawberries, sweet cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, eucalyptus, spices, herbs, chocolates, tobacco, beef jerky and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with very soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This fruit forward California Zinfandel is spicy and well balanced with mild complexity.

Might be too fruity for some, but it is very tasty. Will not last too long, so drink up, if you have any.

I paired it with a charcuterie board and black olives.

14.9% alcohol by volume.
