Wine of the Week: Plungerhead 2011 Old Vine Zinfandel


Posted on January 14, 2013


Lodi produces a stunning array of delicious old-vine Zinfandels, and I relished one recently from the Plungerhead brand – a sophisticated, rich 2011 Zinfandel that also contained 5 percent Petite Sirah, 5 percent Primitivo and 5 percent Sirah. The bouquet was redolent of black cherries and ripe summer blackberries, with a delicate hint of violets; and generous flavors of blackberries and black plums were layered with spicy, vivacious hits of cinnamon and black pepper, with a lovely roasted oakiness and a touch of leather on the finish. Fruity yet nicely restrained, this easy-drinking Zin would be perfect with barbecue, pizza, a hearty lasagna and meaty winter stews.
