LODI ZINFANDEL

Lodi, the self-proclaimed "Zinfandel Capital of the World", is home to some of the finest Zinfandels in California. The distinctive characteristics of the region are reflected in our 2018 Lodi Zinfandel. Beautifully expressive on the nose, with bold fruit notes that hint at what is to come. A lush, full-bodied Zinfandel, with bright red berry fruit of blackberry and dark cherry, accented by sublte spice, cocoa and hints of vanilla. The flavors linger on a long finish perfectly balanced with soft, velvety tannins.


FOOD PAIRING

This full-bodied round Zinfandel makes an excellent food pairing choice for anything hot off the grill, such as grilled tri-tip steak.

Garnet color. Rich aromas or raspberry compote, vanilla nut fudge, and a mint with a supple, fruity medium-to-full body and a juicy, cherry tart, peppery spice, and cedar finish. A fun, flavorful, and very well balanced zin for all occasions.

Lodi Vineyard Sourcing

Located east of the San Francisco Bay, at the edge of the Sacramento River Delta, Lodi is home to some of the oldest Zinfandel vineyards in the state. A dry growing season featuring warm days and cool evening breezes offer ideal growing conditions that lead to full-flavored wines. Vineyards are planted in either fine sandy loam soils at lower elevations, or clay-based and stony soils at higher elevations. These well-draining soils produce well-structured wines with intense fruit flavors and rich silky texture.
