    2020 Klinker Brick "Old Vine" Zinfandel (Lodi, CA) 9R

    Crafted from grapes sourced from ancient, gnarled vines that have deep roots in the Lodi region of California. This special old vine fruit imparts unique character and intensity to the wine. This wine is bold and robust, showcasing the rich essence of dark fruits like blackberry and black cherry. These fruity notes are complemented by layers of spicy black pepper, a touch of vanilla from oak aging, and an overall warm and comforting profile. The wine is well-structured with balanced tannins, providing a satisfying mouthfeel and a long, lingering finish.
