This wine was inspired by Benish Fried AH. The grapes were grown on Quaschnick Ranch Estates. As one of the early settlers to the Lodi appellation, the Giorgi family was one of the first to take advantage of the classic Mediterranean climate and distinctive soils conducive to the production of world class wine grapes. In the early 1940's the Giorgi family planted a Zinfandel vineyard with a clone provided by the Costamagna family which continues to produce a premium quality wine grape to this day with over 70 years of cultivation!
Wines from this vineyard are somewhat fruity with hints of Chocolate notes. A full tannin wine gives this Old Vine Zinfandel that traditional "old world" full body and savory flavors.
Pairs very well with beef and lamb, it also compliments lasagne very nicely.
