The 1997 Zinfandel Dogtown (15.3% alcohol) is from a 65-year old vineyard situated on the border of Amador. Its dark ruby/purple/garnet color is followed by copious quantities of briery, berry fruit intermixed with loamy soil, underbrush, and spicy notes. Full-bodied and chewy, with excellent ripeness, this tasty, fleshy, full-throttle Zinfandel should drink well for 5-7 years.
Medium ruby, less saturated than the above. Darker aromas of cassis, black raspberry, blackberry, pepper and gunflint. Cooler and rather tightly wrapped in the mouth; a nicely delineated wine with a sizable structure. Finishes firm and long, with youthfully tough tannins. Much fresher than the above sample from Lodi.
