2019 Old Vine Zinfandel, Lizzy James Vineyard
Wild Blackberry & Baking Spices
This Lodi grown single-vineyard Zinfandel displays juicy fruit characters 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.
Cooler temperatures and a wet spring allowed for more gradual fruit development, resulting in better acidity at harvest. Moderate temperatures during ripening, allowed the grapes to mature more slowly, yielding a wine with more depth, flavor concentration, and rich texture.
