Van Ruiten 2004 Old Vine Zinfandel (Lodi)
Rich in the flavors of blackberry, cherry, raspberry and blueberry, this dry wine has a rustic texture. Even though the official alcohol is 14.5%, it tastes a little prickly.
Van Ruiten 2007 Estate Grown Pinot Grigio (Lodi)
A useful white wine. It’s made in a dry, tart style, with pleasing tastes of bitter lemon and lime, herbs, tobacco and peppery spices, brightened with zesty acidity.
