A Zin that taps into Lodi's true potential, this is sleek and light-footed, rich and structured. Aromas of wild flowers, raspberry and cinnamon open to graceful cherry, fresh sage and pepper flavors that take on power and weight on the finish. Drink now through 2021. (TF)
Vivid ruby-red. Intensely perfumed scents of cherry skin, redcurrant, rhubarb, anise and fresh bay, along with a chalky mineral undertone. Dry, nervy and pure, offering vibrant red fruit and floral pastille flavors and complicating spiciness. Gains weight and power with air and finishes with incisive minerality and excellent persistence. There's something intriguingly Nebbiolo-like happening here. This dry-farmed vineyard was planted in 1915.
The 2012 Zinfandel Kirschenmann Vineyard emerges from a site of own-rooted, head-trained vines in Lodi planted on sand owned by Tegan and Olivia Passalacqua. Dark red cherry, plum, mint, spices and licorice wrap around the palate as the wine opens up in the glass. Expressive floral notes (typical of sandy soils) add a level of brightness and perfume on the finish that is hugely appealing. (AG)
The 2012 Zinfandel Kirschenmann comes from a vineyard owned by Larry Turley's viticulturist and winemaker, Tegan Passalacqua, that was planted in 1915. Because of the sandy soils, the vines were never grafted to root stocks. Every Zinfandel I tasted from this vineyard revealed a Pinot Noir-like, perfumed, elegant, cranberry, cherry and dusty loamy soil-filled character. Bedrock's delicious example possesses those characteristics along with abundant fragrance. Production was only 300 cases and the wine was aged in 20% new French oak. It achieved 14.6% natural alcohol. Consume it over the next 3-4 years. (RP)
