Tasting Notes

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ruby. Flamboyant aromas of black raspberry, eucalyptus, licorice, Christmas spices and an exotic hint of peach syrup. Supple and very concentrated; deep and spicy. Very rich but shapely zinfandel. Spicy, slightly aggressive finish features ripe tannins. The white stone fruit notes come from the sandy soil, says Jordan." (May/June 00) 90 points Robert Parker: "Larry Turley and Ehren Jordan told me that their 1998 Zinfandel Dogtown Vineyard (16.5% alcohol) produced a mere two-thirds of a ton of fruit per acre. An intriguing wine, it reveals a Provencal-like, black cherry and garrigue aroma with scents of the seaweed wrap used in sushi preparations called nori. Deep, opulent, rich, and expansive, with fabulous fruit and low acidity, it is one of the finest efforts from Lodi I have ever tasted. Drink it over the next 4-5 years." (06/00)
