Product information

Zinfandel Red Californian Wine

For over 35 years, Ravenswood has delivered classically crafted Zinfandels of exceptional quality and soul from Old Vines in the best Zinfandel vineyards on Earth.

Our Lodi Zin boasts big, early ripening grapes from deep, sandy soils that produce wines bursting with luscious fruit flavors of blueberry and black cherry, aromas of chocolate and spice, and acidity so balanced it could walk a tightrope.

Tasting Notes

Lodi is bursting with luscious aromas of plum, black cherry and black currant with flavours of blueberry, blackberry, cocoa and spice. A lingering, juicy, supple finish is complemented by acidity so balance it could walk a tightrope.

History

Robust and red are the two qualities that define the wines of Raven Wood. At Ravenswood they use Old World wine making methods and try to keep every vineyard separate in the winery along with trying to capture the spirit of California’s best growing regions. They strive to put what they pick from the field right into the bottle ‘unaltered, unapologetic, unfussy, unwimpy.’ At Ravenswood “our goal is to exalt the grape, not overwhelm it.”

Regional Information

The Lodi region is characterized by warm days and cool nights with deep, sandy soils, forcing the vine’s roots to push deep to find water and nutrients. The old vines that supply our Lodi Zinfandel typically are the first of our three County Zinfandels to be harvested. The warm days and early ripening lead to a soft and very fruit-driven Zinfandel.
