Rated 92 points Wine Enthusiast “This wine is big but graceful, practically overflowing with tasty, ripe berry and cherry flavors, and revealing delicious baking-space accents as it opens in the glass. It feels smooth and luxurious in texture and has a lingering finish.” JIM GORDON
The Winery and Vineyards: The Mettler family are 6th gen grape farmer, descended from Alsace farmers. The whole family is wedded to the land and works at the winery. Lodi is recognized as a unique source of great Zin in California and their vineyards go way back. Located between the Calavares River to the south, the Comanche Reservoir to the east and the the Sacremento River to the west, Lodi has the perfect climate.
About the Wine: Grapes for this wine were harvested in September 2016, from one of the oldest Zinfandel
vineyards on our ranch where the deep-rooted vines thrive in rich, sandy loam soils. This 50-year old vineyard is located in the ‘epicenter’ of Lodi’s old vine Zinfandel district and is
organically and sustainably grown.
