Heather Wall rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

From the Mecca of Zinfandel in Calilfornia - Lodi. At $18 this Ironstone is worth every cent. Gobs of stewed and jammy fruit, chocolate, coffee, cracked black pepper, saddle, and smoke. Acidity is balanced and preps the palate for each sip. This is a medium-bodied Zinfandel with a rich, velvety mouthfeel. This is definitely worth a half a case and put it away for those summer BBQ's we're starting to dream about during these dark winter months. Or enjoy on it's own...I did.
Tasted: January 2016




Natalie's Review

Ironstone Vineyards Old Vine Zinfandel 2010, Lodi, California, United States: Hickory woodsmoke, campfire all the way. Please, tell me that campfire story again as the smoke swirls around my head and the stars above us on this mid-summer night. Perfect for grilled meats. Ironstone delivers extreme value in the glass at many price points. Pair this blockbuster red with BBQ chicken or ribs. Drink: 2013-2018. 951889 14.50% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 89/100.

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.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
