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.

Description: The Old Ghost represents the best zinfandel that Klinker Brick produces each year. Smaller berries harvested from this vineyard block, tend to offer more “skin to flesh”, providing a greater level of smooth yet firm tannin and structure to this wine.

aged 18 months
Harvest Date: October 11, 2013
Brix: 26.5 ?
Alcohol: 15.9%

Flavours: Brambleberry fruit aromas intermingled with anise, clove and exotic spice, echo previous vintages.
