DeLoach Private Collection Zinfandel 2017 2017

Zinfandel is (understandably) a very popular grape – its intense, red berry and spice characters plus trademark silkiness have earned it a big following. Especially in Lodi (aka the Zinfandel Capital of California and Wine Enthusiast’s 2015 Region of the Year), where it reaches its apex of juicy-rich ripeness.

We’ve known for years that our good friends at DeLoach (a 12-time Wine & Spirits Winery of the Year) make a real stunner – and we were finally able to snag a lot of their sought-after “Private Collection” Zin. Just wait until you taste it.

Made by DeLoach’s talented head winemaker, Brian Maloney, with grapes from low-yielding (flavor boosting!) old vines, it’ll be a surefire win with roasted turkey and other poultry, beef, hearty rice dishes, and more. Uncork, and you’ll unleash aromas of ripe raspberry with notes of black cherry preserves, lifted by floral hints. Then look forward to layers of dark berries and hints of dried plums on the palate, flecked with notes of white pepper and smoky oak.
