An elegant, full-bodied, smooth and smoky Zinfandel from Lodi, California. Dry and juicy with dark plum, blackberry, raspberry, baking and cedar spice flavours finishing smoky and vibrant on the palate. Pair with burgers from the grill.

Zinfandel food pairings: gourmet burgers, meat lover's pizza topped with more steak, grilled sausages.

Reviews and Ratings

Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Big and plush, plummy, bing cherry, soft spice, burnt caramel and a toasty-oakiness (not overplayed though). Nicely balanced. Perfect steak wine. Tasted Sept 2020
Ivory & Burt 2017 Zinfandel is smoky on the nose with wild strawberry, raspberry, blackberry and savoury herb aromas. Full-bodied and plushy on the palate with raspberry, blackberry, baking and pepper spice flavours and finishing smoky on the palate. Food-friendly acidity and rounded tannins on this sustainably-grown Zin from Lodi. Pair with burgers and ribs from the grill. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
