2012 Lodi Red Blend
Big structure, bold flavors, incredibly affordable.
Beautifully aromatic, with spicy raspberry, jammy blackberry, and delicate floral notes lingering right out of the glass. On the palate, the wine proves rich and warm, with lavish raspberry and savory plum notes that persist through its long finish. Big structure as well – definitely a wine you can age another 5-6 years. As far as style goes, this is more of a Cab lover’s style of wine, with a darker fruit profile vs the cherry pie and kirsch from the Lot 487 Blend. Dynamite juice has given this blend tremendous breadth and texture – a perfect wine for your next steak or summer BBQ
Style: Medium, Smooth
Flavors: Plum, Raspberry
Lot 456 2012 Lodi Red Blend is in a terrific class of wine that you don’t see a whole lot of, and comprised of a unique blend you rarely find anywhere else: Tempranillo/Malbec/Grenache. Tempranillo in Lodi has a tremendous future – there isn’t much of it growing in Lodi right now, but we know some guys with Tempranillo vineyards well cropped in the eastern Sierra soils, and they make terrific wine. Aged in high end French oak, Lot 456 isn’t as big in structure as Napa cabs, but it’s still a bold mouthful of wine, and the quality is incredible for the price point. Just fantastic as an everyday drinking big wine.
