2017 Zinfest Wine '15 Commemorative
The honor of crafting the ZinFest Commemorative Zinfandel is bestowed upon one Lodi winery each year. This year’s Commemorative Zinfandel by m2 Wines was grown in a vineyard that is about 40 years old; the vines are head-trained (self-supporting) and the ground is close to Harney Lane and Beckman Road, just east of Highway 99, in Lodi. The wine was cellared for 19 months in American oak barrels.
This 2015 vintage wine is full-bodied and rich in flavor. The tannins are fully integrated and the acidity is balanced. The texture in the mouth is soft, yet rich, like velvet and silk due to fine tannins and great balance. In the glass the wine is a dark garnet in color with aromas of rich red and black fruit; cherries, blackberries, cranberries, hints of strawberry. If you remember your grandmother’s kitchen cabinet full of baking spices you’ll get hints of allspice, cloves, cinnamon - maybe, along with toasty notes of pie-crust and almonds.
