GOLD MEDAL | Sakura Japan Women's Wine Awards 2022
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, Wine Orbit writes "Superbly ripe an perfumed, the bouquet shows mixed berry compote, toasty oak, smoked meat and mocha characters, followed by a sumptuous palate delivering terrific weight and plush texture. It's mouthfilling and velvety to the finish."
The winery writes "The 2019 Three Finger Jack Old Vine Zinfandel is bold and concentrated, opening with rich aromas of black raspberry, toasty oak, roasted coffee, and plum. Intense flavors of 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."
