2018 Zinfandel, Scottsdale Vineyard
Baked Blueberries & Tobacco
Scottsdale Zinfandel showcases aromas of brambly wild berry, black cherry and baked blueberries with a medium-bodied weight. Silky smooth tannins and sweet pipe tobacco abound, while a touch of herbaceous, minty violet carries through the finish of this seductively rich wine.
Our Scottsdale Zinfandel Vineyard, nicknamed “the blueberry vineyard,” is located on a unique stretch of Lodi’s Mokelumne River Sub-AVA, offering a mix of Old Vine plantings and an unparalleled vineyard profile. The 2018 vintage played out like a dream for winemakers. Moderate temps through spring and summer brought about a slightly later harvest, prolonged with cooler weather during ripening, allowing grapes to mature more slowly. This yielded wines with more depth, flavor concentration and supple texture.
