WHY WE LIKE IT - One of our favorite values from the Zap Zin festival
TASTING NOTES - Aromas of ripe wild berry flavors with a hefty dusting of spice and zesty pepper. The 2019 Old Vine Zinfandel is full-bodied with a juicy entry and big finish.
PRODUCTION NOTES - Located in California’s Lodi region, our vineyards are between 30 to 50 years old. Here our ancient, head-trained vines yield only a few grape clusters; each with small, intensely flavored berries. As a result, Four Vines Old Vine Zinfandel is bold in both flavor and body. At harvest time, grapes were picked during the cool night and early morning hours and delivered immediately to the winery to be destemmed and gently pressed into fermentation tanks. After seven to nine days of fermentation, the wine was gently racked into a combination of French, Hungarian and American oak for malolactic fermentation and ten months of aging.
PARK PLACE SOMMELIER PAIRING - Pair with grilled/roasted meats with an herbal/savory preparation. BBQ, hearty meat sauces & stews. Try with BBQ'd Lamb Empanadas with Golden Raisins & Pecans.
