WINEMAKING NOTES:

A robust Zinfandel from the region's signature 50-100 year-old vines. Jammy with raspberry, milk chocolate and mocha falvors, soft tannins and a supple mouth feel. 


FERMENTATION/AGING:

Fermented cool to retain the fresh, bright aromatics, we select the most expressive lots to pair with carefully selected blends of oak of various toast levels and forest sources, as well as keep separate to retain their fruit forward expression. After aging, the different oak and stainless stell lots are blended by the winemaker to make a Zinfandel that has the traditional bright raspberry and blackberry tones of Lodi Zinfandel as well as the depth and richness that has become the hallmark of OZV.
