2015 endless summer Zinfandel - Orange Coast Winery
Juicy boysenberry, freshly ground black pepper, stemmy bramble. Strawberry compote, ripe black cherry, and a heaping handful of blueberries. Balanced and showing restraint, with good acidity and a pinch of subtle tannin. A Zin made properly can do this crazy thing where a whole spectrum of fruit is revealed in a single glass. This 2015 'The Endless Summer' Monfort Vineyard Lodi Zinfandel by Orange Coast Winery is one of those Zins that reminds you how fun and interesting this varietal can be.
