The 2013 Brazin Lodi Zinfandel is big, bold and offers aromas of rich blackberry and mocha that mingle with hints of black pepper and soft vanilla. Intense flavors of ripe plum, black currant and jammy blackberry rock the palate of this daring Zinfandel. Balanced acidity and lingering tannins add complexity, concentration and depth to the finish.
Serve with slow roasted bone-in country pork ribs, grilled chili-rubbed flank steak or pasta with Italian sausage and black olives.
