2006 Lodi Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel: Good. Slight cinnamon. But also musty.


may 29, 2009: we had pizza earlier, and it's in the fridge if we're still hungry. but in the meantime, we decided to open up this klinker brick on rob williamson's suggestion. victoria thinks it's a good buy. zins in general seem to be hits with us. it has a mustiness to it that's not negative or bad in any way ... it just makes it distinctive. there is a slight tannic feel, but it's only about a 2 on the 1-5 scale (5 being most tannic). greg says it's very interesting. it's got a sweet and cat foody nose, with slight fruitiness and acidity. he says it's a 2 on the 1-5 acidity scale (5 being so acidic it's undrinkable). 15.8 percent alcohol. $14.39 with mixed-case discount at big red liquors.
