Aaron:  I’ve never really been disappointed with Moss Roxx and this was pretty good as well.  There was some brown sugar and fig with blueberry undertones.  Dark tobacco was wrapped around berries which were bursting with juice and chocolate.  There was a hint of woody notes at the finish but as expected, this is your traditional, big, lodi zin.  90 points

Teri: Moss Roxx is one of the bottles I go to when I want an easy to drink but hearty red wine. The nose is jammy with undertones of nutmeg and cinnamon. You can taste more baking spices on the wine flavor with dark raspberry, vanilla, and plum. A ‘traditional’ California jammy zinfandel; Fruit forward with structured but smooth tannins. If you are a wine drinker who likes pinot’s or other medium-bodied red wines, this is a good bottle to try if you want something a little bolder. 90 points
