2018 Old Vine Zinfandel, Lizzy James
Wild Blackberry, Baking Spices
This Lodi grown single vineyard Zinfandel displays juicy fruit character of ripe wild blackberry, boysenberry jam and candied cherry. An intoxicating opulence of sweet baking spices, warm texture and serious structure make for an unforgettably long-lasting finish.
The 2018 vintage played out like a dream for winemakers. Moderate temperatures through spring and summer brought about a slightly later harvest that was prolonged, with cooler temperatures during ripening. This allowed grapes to mature more slowly, yielding wines with more depth, flavor concentration and supple texture.
