93 Points 5 Stars - Sam kim Wine Orbit
"Splendidly ripe and seductively complex, showing sweet plum, vanillin oak, malt chocolate, dark spice and potpourri aromas on the nose. The wonderfully expressed palate displays plush mouthfeel and velvety tannins, backed by opulent fruit flavours, finishing long and expansive. At its best: now to 2027."

From one of the most exciting wine regions in California. Produced from mature vineyards with 50+ year old vines. This Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel is an intense, full-bodied wine with dark fruits, cherry, and spice. Lingering tannins over a long, smoky finish. 

The ladybug, the brand icon, is a natural predator of harmful vineyard insects. “Natural predation” is one of many eco-friendly strategies employed in the vineyards to help limit the use of chemical pesticides.

The 2019 vintage proved to be another ideal harvest in Lodi. With just enough heat during the day and cool nights, the grapes were able to reach peak ripeness, giving  grapes of wonderful concentration, good balance and refined quality. Aged in 75% French Oak 25% American Oak.

Best food match with short ribs or a juicy burger.
