Intro: Welcome to Klinker Brick Winery, Award-winning producer of Old Vine Zinfandel from Lodi. Great wine begins with a suitable climate and soil, both of which are found in Lodi. Sandy Loam soil coupled with the hot, cold exchange that graces Lodi from day to night creates a utopic environment to cultivate warm-weather varietals including Zinfandel, Cabernet and Syrah.

Vinification: Cooperage: French Oak 15 months
Harvest Date: October 1, 2012
Alcohol: 14.9%


Flavours: The palate is greeted with bright and vibrant flavors of blackberry, anise and exotic spices. Supple tannins and superb balance lend structure to this full-bodied Syrah with a long, lingering finish.

Food Pairings: Enjoy with grilled meats or mushroom risotto.

Review: Charred oak aromas and flavors are paramount in this assertive, bold and tannic wine. By themselves the smoky, peppery aspects would make for a one-dimensional wine, but this one adds substantive, rich, blackberry-like fruit flavors underneath. The firm tannins call for pairing with a rib-eye steak or barbecue. Editors' Choice. Score - 90. (Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast, Aug. 2017)
