2016 Black Widow Lodi Zinfandel

SKU: URCZBW-16

Lodi, California

An old vine selection of 100% Zin farmed on the eastern edge of the Lodi AVA, the Black Widow is a complex, hearty expression of Zinfandel that delivers the finest attributes of the grape. Deep ruby in color, the nose exudes briary notes of raspberry and loganberry accented by grilled herbs, browned meats and a bold dash of spices. The soft velvety mouthfeel offers the ideal backdrop to enjoy the wine’s sweet juicy flavors of ripe strawberry with hints of white pepper and vanilla cream. These decadent flavors continue through the long, vibrant finish and make for a classic pairing such as BBQ’d pork ribs.
