91 Points! The Tasting Panel
"A head-trained Zin that proffers ripe, red fruit, toasty oak, and a plush texture.
Juicy, elegant, and spicy.

Our Thoughts on this wine.....

This well oaked wine overflows with vanilla, chocolate and botanicals
and cedar flavors that blend beautifully with ripe blackberries and black cherries
for a potent, but harmonious, overall impression.
It is full bodied, moderately tannic and has a lingering oak-spice finish.

Pairs with Barbecue, Braises and stews, Dirty burgers (the kind piled up with cheese, bacon, onions, pickles), Meaty pasta sauces and pasta bakes, Meat-topped pizzas, Baked, roast or stuffed eggplant, Black bean soup, black bean chilis - (actually any chili with or without meat), Hardy Cheeses, especially blue cheese.

A bit about The Rubus Project
and the Lodi AVA....

 The Rubus Project was created by specialty importer Fran Kysela as a way to source & sell incredible wines at value prices. All wines in this international project are hand-selected by Fran Kysela. Rubus wines are fruit driven, true-to-type values that over deliver – a true representation of quality for the consumer at an excellent price.
The Lodi American Viticultural Area (AVA) was officially recognized in 1986. Perfectly situated 90 miles east of the San Francisco Bay, the Lodi AVA is one of the largest in California at approximately 550,000 acres, more than 100,000 of which are planted to premium wine grapes. The Lodi region enjoys a moderate Mediterranean climate. Mild year-round temperatures, warm days, and cool nights all help produce grapes with full-flavor and perfect acidity. Sandy clay loam soils dominate in the region. They are rich in minerals and play a great role in producing wines of high quality and long-lasting flavors that truly represent the region.
Lodi has become the self-proclaimed “Zin” capital of the World producing over 40% of California's Zinfandel grapes. Zinfandel was one of the first grape varieties to be planted in the area during the California Gold Rush, therefore it holds a special place in Lodi’s history as a winegrowing region. The vines are naturally low-yielding due to their age, and they consistently produce high quality fruit.
