2010 McCay Cellars Equity Lodi Zinfandel

One sip of this fine elixir from McCay Cellars and Lodi Zinfandel should earn some equity in your cellar well at least a bottle placement or two. Wines of this pedigree are not all that common these days and Lodi should be getting a little more love from wine consumers who appreciate a Zinfandel with finesse. The initial aromas are reminiscent of a late harvested fruit smoothie made with blackberry, sweet Oregon cherry, hazelnut and a hint of figs. On the palate it is a texturally pleasing wine that is lush, plush and sensual. The big berry swirl flavor continues to come through all the way to the long lingering finish making this a perfect match for fall tailgating grill items and slow smoked southern BBQ. For a blockbuster experience that emanates the soul of Lodi, grab a bottle of this McCay Zin and share it with love.   288 cases produced.

Rating: Excellent (91) | $32 | 14.4% ABV
