Lodi Avenue Cellars Zinfandel 2016
Lodi Avenue Cellars is made by the Scotto Family of California, best known for their intense, straightforward, knock-out wines like Heavyweight Red. And isn’t that just what you want sometimes? A wine that doesn’t want or claim to be complex. A wine that pairs with sitting on the couch watching some mindless Netflix show. Well Lodi Avenue Old Vine Zinfandel is exactly that. Deep ruby in color, bursting with black cherries, dried plums, baking spices, cedar, and chocolate. A big, bold roundhouse flavor kick to the face paired with a snappy one-liner! Enough acid and tannin to keep the wine balanced, but neither are particularly noticeable. So relax, turn down the volume on your worries, and simply enjoy a glass of wine.
