Boneshaker Lodi Zinfandel Red Wine 2015 is a blend of 81% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. Older vines make bolder Zins. The primary sources of this Zinfandel, the Bruella and Fathom Vineyards, are home to vines over forty years old. These vines produce intense, robust Zinfandel with full-tilt flavors.
The renowned Hahn Family makes the Boneshaker Zinfandel, and the bottle of the wine includes a white on a black label that pays homage to the 1869 bicycle made with a stiff wrought-iron frame, wooden wheels, and tires of iron.
This Zinfandel has brick red and deep purple color in the glass and a bit of sweetness with a structured palate. Fruity at first, vanilla cream mid, and cacao chocolate with a bit of oak to finish. It is a deliciously bright and fruit-forward with many deep fruit characteristics standing out, such as plum, cherry, and boysenberry.
Boneshaker's full body is an excellent pairing for cioppino, lasagna, or pizza. It has bottled at 15% alcohol by volume. Enjoy the chilled glass of wine with your buddies!
