“A lavish but balanced oak character brings this full-bodied wine enticing baking-spice aromas, velvety tannins and a sense of saturation that enhances the dark blueberry and blackberry fruit at its core. Best through 2026.” – JIM GORDON

Description

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.
