WINE REVIEW: 2016 Three Finger Jack Cabernet Sauvignon ‘East Side Ridge’, Lodi, CA ($18)

by Andrew Chalk



Appearance: Dark ruby. Totally opaque.


Nose: Dark fruit. Plums and blackberries.


Palate: Ripe fruit. Plums, blackberries. Chewy tannins. Pronounced wood. Heavily structured. Medium finish.


The heavy style of this wine almost conceals the fact that it is Cabernet Sauvignon and not a blend with Zinfandel. The pyrazine elements are completely suffocated. It is definitely a style that is coming in at the moment but not one that I have unequivocal good feelings about. You be the judge against your own palate.
