Quick Pour: Oak Ridge Lodi Ancient Vine Zinfandel 2009

Producer: Oak Ridge Winery Region: Lodi (CA) Price: $11.99 Vintage: 2009 Varietals: Zinfandel Virginia Pour House Notes: Looking for a Zinfandel that isn’t overpowering in the alcohol percentage column? The Oak Ridge Lodi Ancient Vine Zin comes in around 13.95% alcohol and  packs big flavors at a great price. Plum, blackberry, raisin, spice, and a kiss of oak that will boggle your senses with this wine’s complexities.  Blackberry and plum power through the taste buds, leaving behind fluttering notes of mocha and coffee. Surprisingly soft and round, appeasing the palate with more luscious fruit than jammy notes, and showing more on the medium bodied side with smooth tannins. For a pleasant Zinfandel that is high quality and in the $10 range, I highly recommend giving the Oak Ridge Lodi a try!     Producer: Oak Ridge Winery Region: Lodi (CA) Price: $11.99 Vintage: 2009 Varietals: Zinfandel Virginia Pour House Notes: …
