A full bodied wine, this Zinfandel showcases the distinct characteristics that have become synonymous with the Lodi AVA. With aromas of dark berry jam, ripe cherry and raspberry tart, these fruit flavors are enveloped with subtle spice and brown sugar note.
Predominantly Estate grown Zinfandel with balance being made by fruit grown by Todd Maley. All grapes sustainably farmed and are certified green under Lodi Rules, located in the Mokelumne River portion of the - Lodi AVA.
Grapes were hand-picked in the morning and gently sorted and transferred to a temperature controlled stainless steel tank for cold soak. Must was inoculated and fermentation was done both in tank and in bins, with regular timed pump overs & punch downs. Aged in American & French Oak.
