Deep magenta with a ruby rim. Ripe raspberry and currants open up to flavors of nuances of clove and cinnamon with a background of sage. Dark berries occupy the palate with lively acidity. Beautiful density couples with a velvety texture for a long structured finish.
The fruit for these blends come primarily from Lodi comprising the same vineyard sources as Lots 191 and 187 plus another vineyard whose wine came our way through our grower contacts. Also blended into this is a little bit of the Zinfandel we make off the Madder Lake vineyard. If you liked Lots 187 and 191 you’ll love this wine.
