FIVE STARS 94/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
We loved this one. This bold Californian Zin hails from the Lodi region - the Zinfandel capital of the world. It is a big, richly weighted, reserve styled wine; densely packed with spicy red fruits and classic Christmas cake flavours that flow over the palate in waves and a finish that lingers with fine tannins and a lick of fresh acidity. It's another opulent wine from Three Finger Jack; a full bodied and complete red wine that we know will have our Zinfandel regulars falling at its feet. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Sam Kim writes "Wonderfully ripe and inviting with dark fruit richness together with cedar, dark chocolate, toffee and cake spice aromas. It's concentrated and mouthfilling, offering plush mouthfeel and layers of delectable flavours, making it highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2025."
The winery writes "The 2018 Three Finger Jack Old Vine Zinfandel is bold and concentrated, opening with rich aromas of black raspberry, toasty oak, roasted coffee and plum. Intense flavours of jammy blackberry, black cherry and spice liven the palate of this bold Zinfandel. Balanced acidity and smooth tannins add complexity and depth to a lingering finish."
