Wild Orchid Wine Club
It was month number three of our Wine Club Membership with Wild Orchid in Hinton, AB. You can read our second blog about the Club here! We picked our wines up on July 2nd and were ready to taste our first selection of the six bottles.
One of the wines was the 2014 Rolling Plains Zinfandel. Rolling Plains is an import from the Lodi, California region. Lodi is located in Northern California about 90 miles East of San Francisco between Sacramento and Stockton. Lodi is described as a rich grape growing region.
Rolling Plains Zinfandel
The Zin was made with 100% Zinfandel grapes. The wine was a medium burgundy colour, lighter in colour than we expected. We couldn’t decide on the fruit, but it had a slightly jammy taste to it. And neither of us found it overly spicy. It was very smooth and a nice drinking wine. At about $20 (most of the Wine Club’s wines are in that range) it is a good value that we would try again.
