Zinfandel is an American original in name and expression, boldly weaving its way into our history and our winemaking. The Gold Rush era ushered in Zinfandel’s first wave in California and Lodi became its headquarters. Italian immigrants settled on Lodi’s west side and planted Zinfandel widely, making it popular with home winemakers. The Old Vine Zinfandel vineyards planted then are now over 100 years old, making Lodi home to some of California’s oldest vines. Requiring little to no water with limited yields, these vines produce grapes that are rich and robust with delicious intensity.
The 2016 Brazin Lodi Zinfandel is bold and concentrated, opening with rich aromas of ripe blackberry, toasty oak, with hints of black pepper and vanilla. Intense flavors of plum jam, black cherry, spice, and mocha, rock the palate of this daring Zinfandel. Balanced acidity and smooth tannins add complexity and depth to the finish. Don’t be bashful with your pairings – be Brazin! Perfect with a bowl of chili, slow roasted bone-in country pork ribs, grilled spice-rubbed flank steak or spicy chicken curry.
