This is a very nice Zinfandel from Lodi. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Showing lots of chocolate and maple notes. Tastes like it was aged in Bourbon Barrels.
A good everyday wine to sip on by the porch. Easy drinking, but might be a little sweet for some.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
Aged in French and American oak barrels (15% new).
14.8% alcohol by volume.
