Lodi-based LangeTwins is a winery we have covered in the past, and recently we received this new, affordable 2010 Zinfandel for review.
It’s a really well-made Zin for this price. There’s solid fruit, but the jamminess is restrained. The fun is in what lies beneath. I love the subtle smokiness of the wine, which blends well with the intense blackberry character. Really clean finish, with a touch of mint that keeps things interesting.
Well done, especially at this price.
