Lodi has become the self-proclaimed “Zin” capital of the world, producing over 40% of California’s Zinfandel grapes. The Kautz Family grows the Crosby grapes in the Mokelumne River sub-appellation of the Lodi AVA. Grown in vineyards that are on average 45 years old, this medium-bodied Zin has exceptional varietal character with lovely aromas of dark fruit and blackberry. Subtle pepper spice mingles with richly concentrated fruit flavors of blackberry, ripe plums, and fresh red raspberries. One portion of the wine was finished in oak to create its smooth, silky finish and unprecedented depth.
