Plungerhead Zin

We do not drink a lot of Zin, but every once in a while we make an exception. A couple of nights ago, with the season's first home grilled hamburger, 2006 Plungerhead Lodi Old Vines Zinfandel, ABV 14.5% according to the label. Produced by The Other Guys, a division of Don Sebastiani & Sons. Purchased on recommendation of local wine merchant for $16. A very good wine for summer grilling in my opinion. Lots of fruit and deserving of the often used "jammy" description. It was refreshing to have a California Zin with this relatively low level of alcohol - no heat whatsoever from this one. Sealed with a "zork", a rubberized, peel-off stopper as opposed to a synthetic cork.(I am guessing this is where the oddball name comes from.) I would rate it a decent buy at the price.

Curious if anyone else has an opinion of this wine.
