Plush, juicy, cheerful.
Hailing from the 110,000 acre predominantly red wine growing AVA of Lodi (claimed as the Zinfandel capital of the world), this plush but balanced Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with Zin and Petite Sirah and matured in French and American oak barrels. Made by the family-owned Oak Ridge Winery (the oldest operating winery in the AVA), it's a Certified Green wine as outlined by Lodi Sustainable Winegrowing. The Maggio & Reynolds families make wines under nine labels, all from Lodi.
Expect dusty plums and black currents, licorice, mocha, baking spice and blueberry aromas, which weave into a juicy red with a supple weight. Lifted purple fruit, vanilla, coffee and spice flavours are expressed on the palate.
An approachable, fresh and cheerful red.
