Tonight is night 2 on a bottle of 2008, Lodi OVZ from Oakridge Winery. I think I picked this up for about $17 at Compton's Market in Sacramento. Aromas of blackberry, bacon and a hint of coco. I love the saturated ruby color and the touch of toasted oak, vanilla and hickory smoke on the palate. There is a slight spicy/peppery note, but it's shy, as though its hiding behind its older brother. For a Lodi Zin, it is not too overpowered by heat from the alcohol, and it has subtle tannins, a pretty well-balanced wine.
