Housley's Century Oak Winery Inez's Vineyard Old Vine 2014 Zinfandel, $11.89-$28.99, 90 points, poured a deep sienna color brightening toward the broad meniscus and thick legs.
Aromas of sun-warmed briar fruit, a waft of coffee, a bit of leather, and an oft-used expression which I obliquely describe as underbrush tumbled together nicely.
Near full-bodied with good acidity and a supportive underlayment of tannin helped to showoff loads of nuanced fruit without being a typical Lodi fruit-bomb.
Finished fine on restrained pepper spices, dried cooking herbs, and a robust 15% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my bean and beef tostada.
