A traditional stronghold of Zinfandel, Lodi has the heat to ripen this demanding grape all the way to a lush fruitiness, but it takes the right attention to strike balance and restraint. Skilled hands at Eminent Archon mitigate over-ripeness in the field, leading to a complex mix of flavors that epitomizes Zinfandel's ability to express a variety of fruit flavors in one bottle. There is so much to enjoy here for the price, expect this to go fast!

"Well-balanced and nicely centered, the bright raspberry aromas are complimented with flavors of black currant and red plum. This is a classicly structured California Zinfandel has an elegant structure and finesse." ~Eminent Archon

Winemaking Notes
The 2012 California wine grape harvest yielded generous amounts of high quality fruit, and winemakers across the state are describing this year's vintage as "excellent," "outstanding" and "ideal." "The 2012 vintage will offer consumers in our growing national and international markets fantastic choices," said Robert P. (Bobby) Koch, President and CEO of Wine Institute. "The California winegrape harvest is estimated at 3.7 million tons, up from 3.3 million tons in 2011."Mother Nature smiled upon the California wine harvest this year with a bountiful crop of amazing quality," said Kathleen Heitz, President of Heitz Wine Cellars. "The diversity and depth of talented winemakers throughout the state promise some exciting and vibrant wines from the stellar 2012 vintage." September's warm temperatures allowed grapes to gradually ripen delivering outstanding quality across the region. A relatively dry October, compared to the previous three years, allowed most late ripening reds to be picked at optimal conditions delivering flavor-packed, balanced wines.
