The Flying Winemaker Zinfandel 2007

Member Review by Jimmy Cocktail:

The 2007 Zinfandel is made from juice that comes from ancient vines in the Lodi region. It is exactly what one would expect of a Lodi Zin. It is a translucent garnet in color fading to dark orange at the edge. It is a big wine, coming in at 14.5% alcohol and this alcohol is apparent in the nose. Once you get through this bite of alcohol, you get aromas of blackberry quickly followed by tar and tobacco. On the palate, the blackberry is very pronounced and is followed by tar and a very long and lingering spicy finish. The soft tannins of this wine make it very ready to drink now. This is a wine that goes down easily, especially for those that aren’t normally red wine drinkers. And coming in at around $12 a bottle, this is a wine that can easily be served in quantity for a party.

At $8.95, the price I paid by the case, this is a nice value and will please any "fall-daily-drinking-zin-fan." Nice sweet spice and a long finish with low tannin. I agree--an easy crowd pleaser with no worries about a great bottle being consumed by a crowd that "likes red wine."

Four and a half glasses



<p>This deep, complex wine is full of intense dark berry aromas and flavors. Tannins are polished and soft.</p>
