More info

Planted in the mid 1970's on the east side of Lodi, these vines were trained in the vertical cordon system which can sometimes be mistaken for head trained.  These slightly taller vines held broad canopies that with proper thinning spread the fruit out into perfect sun dappled ripening zones.
Ultimately, the family sold the vineyard and the buyer pulled out the Zinfandel vines.

Vividly laden with atypical red fruit characteristics, this Zinfandel doesn't show some of the ripe black-plum-cherry we normally expect.  Instead it shows layers of beautifully integrated floral-red strawberry and cherry aromas intertwined with subtle spice notes and a lightly pepper finish.
