DAOU Lodi Old Vine 2008 Zinfandel

DAOU Lodi Old Vine 2008 Zinfandel, $25.99-$29.99, 88 points.
Hiding in an aroma of rich fruit is this burnt toast and tire rubber (Not all bad), but didn't please me much either; many White Wines have pleased my nose less and still tasted good. 
The color wasn't crystal-clear, but youthful deep Bordeaux.
The texture is lush and smooth.
Flavors of tangy plum and licorice dominate a Zinfandel that only finishes with moderate black-pepper.
On the second day, this wine improved, and the finish gained some depth.

  1. Factoid, but not insignificant: some winemakers are so meticulous about the quality of their wine, that when a vintage is not good, they'll not market the wine. Giuseppe Nicolis from TheWineSpies
