(December 29, 2015) ... If I am not mistaken my buddy Dave recommended this Zin to me, he's usually an Amador County man but this time he praised a Lodi version of Zin, so I took him up on trying a bottle once I got home (granted I got the bottle in Michigan, and I think k it was a gift from Dave). The "Boneshaker" is a pleasant bottle whose alcohol shows through a bit (I guess that's the Bone-Shaking part, cause you can feel this one rattling around inside; but there is other stuff here to get excited about: spiced-plum, chocolate, black cherry, cassis, vanilla, and white pepper - as mentioned the alcohol does show through a little on the nose, but what really shakes you to the core is that spice, which really rings true on the palate and makes this one quite the enjoyable wine ... right again Dave.
