Tasted with a bunch of Lodi Zins. Garnet in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has black raspberries, black pepper, and some herbal notes. A little coffee with air. Medium bodied. On the palate, black raspberry fruit. Nice mouthfeel. Medium tannins. Cough syrup on the warm finish. Overall a nice Lodi Zin that is neither a bomb nor on the elegant side. Easy drinking. Drink over the next seven to ten years. This will work better with food, perhaps a burger or ribs off the grill.
