Karen Birmingham is an American wine maker whose eponymous creations can be obtained in the UK via Naked Wines. This 2018 Zinfandel hails from the town of Lodi, in San Joaquin County, California, just a few miles south of the state capital, Sacramento. The town itself was immortalised in the 1969 Creedence Clearwater Revival single ‘Lodi’, but now it’s far better known for its wines and was awarded “2015 Wine Region of the Year” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
This is a fruity red wine that is described as going well with burgers, barbecue ribs, grilled meats and hearty pasta. We really enjoyed it and rated it as one of the nicer reds that we have sampled. It’s one that we would most certainly order again.
