Stellina 2012 Reserve Old Vine Zinfandel comes from Estate Crush, a custom crush facility producing a great many small lot wines from grapes in the Lodi area of California. They sell wine from the Stellina Estate Vineyard under their own Estate Crush label.

Stellina 2012 Reserve Old Vine Zinfandel, Estate CrushIts nose offers a burst of mushroom and blue cheese, activating my cat-like curiosity from first sniff. I questioned for a moment if the bottle was compromised—the smell was that strong—but I quickly decided it was just potent after drinking it.

I did not expect to like it…but I loved it. It’s the perfect complement to a nice, juicy steak. No need to order toppings; the wine has all the necessary elements. Warmed fruit joins the mushroom and blue cheese, and pencil shavings finishes it off.
