The grapes for our Klinker Brick "Old Vine” Zinfandel come from several different vineyards within the Lodi Appellation, depending upon the highest quality of fruit produced each year, and has included several vineyards in the Mokelumne and in the Clements Hills region.
These vineyards are generally head-trained and dry farmed, yielding an average of 2.0 to 3.5 ton per acre. Some of the oldest vineyards have yields as small as .25 ton per acre. While there are significant limitations in the quantity of grapes produced, the quality of fruit is exceptional.

Should appeal to fans of intensely ripe and jammy Zinfandels. The aromas of raisin and charred spice lead to zesty and slightly hot baked cherry, tar and licorice flavors. Drink now through 2018. 32,000 cases made. From California. —T.F.
