Add to Cart
Pretty strawberry/raspberry notes are underpinned by plummy blackberry and pepper, framed with charred vanilla/whiskey barrel and tobacco notes. Lush and juicy on the palate, with racy red fruits interlaced with sumptuous milk chocolate and blackberry notes in a long, lingering finish. This is a classic yet modern version of the varietal, featuring the earthy and peppery componentry nicely integrated with concentrated, ripe fruit. Perfection with grilled, roasted meats.

Style: Medium, Smooth

Flavors: Blackberry, Spice, Strawberry

Cam Confidential

Without a doubt, the best value in California right now (from a negociant’s perspective) is Zinfandel. With a lot of Zinfandel producers in Lodi focusing on feeding the red blend craze of the last few years, the huge volumes resulting from multiple high quality, robust vintages has put pressure on the price of even the best lots of high quality Zinfandel. At the end of the day, what makes our program sing is our ability to pick off the best of the best!

Lot 537 is sourced from one of the North Coast's pioneering wineries for the varietal. With fruit sourced from 60 year-old estate vines aged in 40% new American oak, this is a classic Zin: rich, ripe, and lush, but racy and balanced throughout.
