100 Year Old Lodi Zinfandel Almost Ready to Harvest

We are right in the middle of Zinfandel harvest.  Last week we crushed the first of the Lodi Zinfandel lots.  The fruit was excellent, nicely balanced and full of flavor.  The fermentation is already underway.  Yesterday I walked the entire 17 acres of one of my favorite Zin vineyards.  It is in the Lockeford area of the Lodi appellation at the beginning of where the rolling hills of Clements pfizer viagra starts.

These vines are around 100 years old and still producing intensely concentrated

fruit.  There is not much left of these old “head trained” beauties left.  I really enjoy treking thru “time” imagining what has happened through their lifespan.  I have captured several herein picture to share and we will be hand-picking these pretty soon.
