A classic rendition of Cabernet – 13% alcohol, spicy with a dense core of ripe berries, cassis, and sweet tannins. The wine is impeccably balanced and has delicious fruit and savory notes that linger on the palate.
This is the 4th vintage of our Lodi Native Marian’s Vineyard Zinfandel. A collaborative project I started with five other local winemakers to shine the spotlight on Lodi’s historic Zinfandel vineyards. We each choose an old zin vineyard, and make the wines in a non-interventionist style to highlight the unique attributes of each site.
This unique wine is dark, inky, and offers intense aromas of dark fruits mixed with spicy notes. It’s a lively wine with bright acidity and fresh berry flavors that should pair well with rustic country foods.
From our Amador County Vineyard comes this medium-bodied Syrah with earthy blackberry flavors, a touch of pepper spice and an elegant light finish that should pair well with herb roasted chicken. A little Tempranillo and Souzao were added for complexity.
