Aaron:  This wasn’t bad but I was hoping for something better from a Lodi zin (normally my favorite).  I felt the earthy, acidic smell with only a hint of raspberry was unwelcoming.  Fortunately this prepared me for the dry flavor with noticeable tannins.  After a while the taste became more pleasant with some spice and a generally round flavor with mild fruits.  89 points

Teri: Carrying a woody red berry smell, the medium bodied Zin hits the palate with smooth tannins and flavors of black cherry, currant and a hint of cinnamon. I love the long lingering finish. Semi-dry but full. 89 points
