Winemaker's Notes

(From «nv» Vintage) Hard by the sandy shores of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River delta, the agricultural town of Lodi is home to a lot of old Zinfandel vines. It's considered a warm region, but its location, directly in line with the Golden Gate, brings daily afternoon breezes that soften the summer temperatures. Combine this with ancient vines in alluvial soil where roots grow very deep, and you've got a formula for ripe, lush Zin that's also concentrated and intense.

    8% Syrah. The sole claim to varietal character that this frontal, fairly lifeless and underfilled wine makes is its undisguised back-palate tannin, and in all other regards it is simply a shallow and indistinct red that ultimately tastes a bit too much like the cheap wine that it is.
