Lodi is a region already known for intense, powerful Zinfandels. It is now rapidly becoming known for its Rhône varietals too, such as Syrah and Grenache. Hot days are cooled by breezes blowing in off the Sacramento Delta. This wine is a single-vineyard designate (but we agreed to not publish its name), was cropped-in at less than 2 tons per acre, pumped-over 3 times daily, and aged 14 months in new French oak. The vineyard resides in the rolling hills of the northeastern corner of the appellation, just as it pushes into the Sierra Foothills.
