94 points Parker
One of the top-rated Zinfandels of the vintage. Limited.
94 Points Robert Parker: "Made up of 88% Zinfandel and 12% Petite Sirah, the 2017 Zinfandel Aida Estate is deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of fruitcake, plum pudding and mincemeat pie with lifted raspberry preserves and wild sage plus hints of earth and tobacco. The full-bodied palate is concentrated, firm and chewy with great fruit expression and a fragrant finish."
Tasting Notes: Deep and dark in color, the Vineyard 29 2017 Aida Estate Zinfandel possesses expressive aromas of white flowers, lifted raspberry preserves and brambly blackberry that are complimented by hints of white pepper and mountain sage. Upon entry, the blue and black fruits are accompanied by warm baking spices and intense earth and tobacco tones. Full-bodied throughout, this food friendly Zinfandel maintains its freshness and structure with mouth watering acidity and long, chewy, supple tannins on the finish. Crafted to be thoroughly enjoyable upon release, this wine will also age gracefully for 15+ years.
One of the best value boutique Zinfandels in California from Klinker Brick! An intense, fruit-filled wine you expect to cost at least twice as much. If you have yet to try a Zin from Lodi, this is the one!
The Klinker Brick 2017 Old Vines Zinfandel is produced from an amalgam of 14 different vineyard blocks, ranging in age from 35 to 110 years old. This vintage saw lower yields, producing a wine that is both complex and bold. Showing typical Klinker Brick cherry/berry/plum fruit components with aromatic spices on the nose, this wine is incredibly well balanced with a silky smooth texture and a long lingering finish. One of their best!
A fantastic value in Old Vines Napa Valley Zin! The Girard Old Vines Zinfandel Napa Valley is a blend of 76% Zinfandel and 24% Petite Sirah. Sourcecd from mountain vineyards that provide a rich flavor extraction, fruit-forward palate and wonderful layers of complexity from multiple soil types. One of our favorite Napa Zins under $30.
90 Points Wine Spectator: "Plump and briary, with appealing black cherry and spice aromas and ripe, supple raspberry and licorice flavors. Drink now through 2024."
