This wine represents the debut of this Lodi-based winery, premiering with an oddball blend of Zinfandel, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Merlot.
un4seen’s debut is intensely raisiny, with serious menthol notes. It’s jammy and more Zinfandel-like in its character (out of the four grapes in this blend) but ultimately it’s decidedly plain, not the complex beast you might hope for from such an exotic meritage. Ultimately this wine really belongs to no particular world except maybe for the easy-drinking, inexpensive, and simple.
Fair enough for the price.
