Robert Biale Spenker Zinfandel 1999
|Region||California, Central Valley, Lodi|
Wine AdvocateThe 1999 Zinfandel Spenker Vineyard (14.8% alcohol) is a knock-out example of Zinfandel from the unheralded Lodi region. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by copious quantities of sweet, uncomplicated black cherry and berry fruit offered in a spicy, full-bodied, luxuriously rich style. It is delicious to drink now and over the next 3-4 years. This is a terrific example of Zinfandel.
Wine SpectatorA ripe, opulent, juicy style, with rich, with exotic blueberry, boysenberry, blackberry and raspberry. Shows the heat from a superripe vintage, yet manages to maintain its balance. Drink now through 2006. 475 cases made.
