2016 Macchia "Mischievous" Zinfandel
Lodi Appellation grows a wide variety of grapes, but Zinfandel is the undisputed King. It is not hard to find 50, 60, 70 even 100 year old vineyards dotting the landscape. It is from these grapes that some of California’s Best Zinfandels are produced. Macchia used five of these vineyards that when combined, produce the classic, fruit-forward characteristics that are the center piece of all great Lodi wines. Just a touch of Petite Sirah adds structure, as well as, increasing its complexity. Aging in small oak barrels, creates a soft vanilla finish making it a very food-friendly wine that can be enjoyed daily with everything from rich pastas to a juicy barbequed steak.
