It's like a broken record with the Martinelli Zins - remarkable balance and controlled intensity despite the crazy high alcohol level. The 2015 Lolita Ranch is drinking great at age 6. Concentrated flavors center on blueberry, dark currant, dark cherry, sweet spice, dried rose petals. Without food, you definitely feel the alcoholic heat; with food, the wine is smooth as silk. It goes without saying that this is not a wine to open with delicate foods. - HK 2021-10-30
