Boneshaker Lodi 2012 Zinfandel



 
 
 
Boneshaker Lodi 2012 Zinfandel, $15.99-$24.99, 91 points, poured a deep ruby trending Pinot Noir-like Pomegranate red with a thin transparent rim-ring.
I think designating the Boneshaker with a bouquet might be apropos, for smells of cinnamon, clove, cedar, coffee, and a flower component were wonderful.
Full-bodied with moderate and building tannins, fair-plus acidity, and flavors that mirrored the bouquet with the addition of black licorice.
Finished well with spice, violets, plum, and some warmth from the 15% alcohol.
I've not been a big fan of the Lodi AVA, but this one excels, and I should have known that this was a Hahn winery Zinfandel (Always a good wine). Varietals were 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 88% Zinfandel.
Paired perfectly with barbecued burgers.
