Plungerhead Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel, California, 2013 (750ml)
A plush deep purple hue in color, this Lodi Zinfandel comes with enticing aromas of dried cherry, sweet blackberry, Tahitian vanilla, brown sugar, toasted walnut and violets. Complex layered flavors start with bright Bing cherry, black currants, blackberry cobbler, molasses and Mexican hot chocolate. On the finish rich notes of nutmeg, dried sweetened blueberry and sandalwood linger on the palate.
A well balanced, food friendly Zinfandel that can be enjoyed with almost every cuisine. A stunning recommendation would be lamb gyros and Greek sides, or a teriyaki glazed burger with grilled pineapple and a side of sweet potato fries, or even mom's old school meatloaf with a side of roasted potatoes and glazed carrots.
Blend: 90% Zinfandel, 7% Petite Syrah, 2% Petite Verdot, 1% Primitivo
