Drawing from unique vineyards within the Lodi Appellation, our Old Vine Zinfandel is a medley of multiple lots that are individually crafted and blended together to create a wine with varietal character. Aged for eighteen months in predominantly American oak, the toasty notes from barrel aging are well-integrated with the ripe fruit flavors of crushed blackberry. With lush character, our 2015 vintage illustrates the depth that Zinfandel holds.

This is a blend of the best performing Zinfandel vineyards. The vineyard techniques are focused and precise to deliver winegrapes that have a distinct concentration of fruit flavors ideal to make a well-balanced wine.
The heavy rains in December 2014 coupled with sporadic spring storms slightly eased the early season vine stress due to California’s ongoing drought conditions. Warm windy days and cooler than average nights in April and May led to slow crop development as well as small berry and cluster sizes. We did see warmer than average temperatures in June and typical July weather that resulted in an early, intense harvest with lower yields on average. The season began almost three weeks ahead of normal and was completed by the end of September. Throughout the season, we worked hard to keep up with the fast paced harvest to deliver winegrapes at the optimal time with our winemaking team loving the concentrated colors and fruit flavors.
