Classic Mediterranean. Lodi takes advantage of the gap between the northern and southern coastal ranges surrounding the San Francisco Bay. As the day’s temperature rises, cool breezes drift in from the Delta, keeping the nights cool which is ideal for the development of complexity in finished wines.
90 year-old estate vineyard imparts intensity, while the 20 year-old estate vineyard produces bright fruit.
100% of Zinfandel aged with French oak to enhance fruit with spice.
For five generations our family has lived and worked our land in Lodi, California, always striving to leave the land in a better state for the next generation.
