Sourced exclusively from Lizzy James Old Vine Zinfandel Vineyard that was planted in 1904. Vineyard is located approximately 2 miles north of the Tasting Room and has extremely sandy soils. This 2015 vintage was an amazing year for the Lizzy James Zinfandel Vineyard. A rich compilation of concentrated blackberry compote, dried fruit, floral perfume, black spices, cinnamon, maple and bread pudding. Voluptuous, bold richness gives this full-bodied wine a big, delicious taste that won’t disappoint.
With its big bold spicy flavors, the 2015 Lizzy James Zinfandel will go well with homemade chili, slow cooked beef brisket and pan roasted duck breast.

The 2015 Vintage was another early and concentrated vintage due to the lighter rainfall, warm spring and lighter than normal crop load. The Lizzy James Vineyard was quick to ripen with good natural acidity and dark color. Smaller berries yielded more color and fruit intensity and made for a bolder style this vintage. A full bodied wine with great flavor intensity.
