Our 2018 Old Vine Zinfandel is a classic example of a “westside” Lodi Zinfandel. Sourced from the same vineyard as our 2017 Old Vine Zinfandel, the two vintages display characterizations of wildly different growing seasons.
2018 was considered a “normal” season (if there is such a thing!). Seasonal rainfall was fairly typical. Most fruit was set by mid-May then June and July brought warm dry weather that grape clusters love. August was relatively cool and September was moderate.
The result is the 2018 Old Vine Zinfandel displays bright fruit and a pleasant balance that will pair well with many foods.
