Ruby hue with aromas of bacon fat up front with sweet spices, nice Zin nose with an array of scents of cocoa, pie spice, rustic forest greenery (cedar) and spicy berry
Palate–Tasty, gentle structure with smoky berries and spices with a fleeting finish.
I have no idea if this Lodi Zin was in the area or wind drift of any of the fires but clearly tastes like it although in a charming kind of way. I may have paid $14 for this but probably more like $10. At any rate, if you like “smoky” you’ll love this so raise a glass.
