Moss Roxx Zinfandel - $24.00
(No rating yet)
Made from all 100 year old vines this is crossing over Old Vine into Ancient Vine Zinfandel. All jammy and juicy with loads of black fruits and berries. Shining mocha and vanilla on the finish this will show nicely with any Zin out there, even Orin Swift the Prisoner. Try and see.
From Lodi's oldest winery, 7% Petite Sirah and 93% Zinfandel, some of the vines are 120 years old. Picks up awards pretty regularly like a double gold in the CA State Fair Wine Competition 2012.
Lodi is ideally situated between the Sierra Nevada foothills and the San Francisco Bay. Warm days and cool evening breezes (marine influences) create a uniquely Mediterranean climate perfectly suited to cultivating California's top varietals- Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel. While all these grapes thrive here, Zinfandel is a singular phenomenon. Old vines, some over 120 years old, gnarled and sculpted by time, yield small amounts of fruit to create a wine that is the ultimate expression of the terroir.
Our community includes multi-generational families of winemakers and growers. The area also attracts a new generation of vintners who see the opportunities for crafting great wines while setting down their own roots in a nurturing environment.
