|Zinfandel from 100 year old vine in Lodi, California|

But sometimes, man, you can’t tell a stranger about rock ‘n roll, and that’s too bad: more and more sommeliers could give a damn about how this or that critic is “rating” a Zinfandel. We’re looking for interesting Zinfandels that taste great to us, not some pie-in-the-sky idea of what constitutes good Zinfandel. And what tastes great to us is Zinfandels that taste of a place, not a grape.
