Martinelli Lolita Ranch Zinfandel 2015
The 2015 Lolita Ranch Zinfandel has sweet aromas of new leather, strawberry and black cherry. The mouth is spicy with blackberry pie and hibiscus flavors.

Wine AdvocateAt the higher end of the alcohol spectrum, these Martinelli Zinfandels are powerful wines for sure, but I hasten to add that they are beautifully balanced and in terms of flavor, tannin and complexity, they represent the pinnacles of ripeness in every sense. Medium garnet colored, the 2015 Zinfandel Lolita Ranch sports notes of baked black cherries, dark chocolate, Indian spices and potpourri with savory hints of grilled meat and yeast extract. Big, buxom and gloriously full-bodied (and then some), the tannins are marvelously velvety and the richness is nicely offset by lively acidity, finishing with epic length.
