Sept. 10-12, 2015
Avg. Brix at Harvest 25.4
New and Used, French and American Oak
First Bottling June, 2016
The grapes for our 2015 Zinfandel were harvested between Sept. 10 - 12, with an average Brix of 25.4. After 7-9 days of stainless steel fermentation on the skins, the must was pressed and the wine finished fermentation. The wine was then aged, on average, for 4-6 months with a combination of new and used, French and American Oak.
Our 2015 Lodi Zinfandel shows juicy bright red fruits with soft supple tannins. With aromas of ripe red currants and fresh Strawberries, the wine is medium dark purple. This wine shows many characteristics of other classic Lodi Zinfandels.

This was disappointing. For a 14.5% wine, it was surprisingly light. Some fruit and pleasant to drink, but not the big, chewy Zin I expected.

Delicious textbook Lodi Zin. Great fruit. Beautiful texture.
