Mettler Family Vineyards "Epicenter" Old Vine Zinfandel is a homage to the Mettler family heritage of over 100 years and six generations of farming in Lodi. The grapes were harvested in fall from one of the oldest Zinfandel vineyards on their ranch where the deep-rooted vines thrive in rich, sandy loam soils. This 50-year old vineyard is located in the ‘epicenter’ of Lodi’s old vine Zinfandel
district and is organically and sustainably grown.
Deep, opaque garnet in color, Mettler Family Vineyards "Epicenter" Old Vine Zinfandel offers enticing aromas of dried red currant, brambly blackberry and vanilla with an impressive concentration of flavors of sweet raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry pie, enriched by notes of sweet tobacco, pepper and hints of cola. The full-bodied, elegant palate is aligned with the nose with light acidity and silky, plush tannins. Pairs well with a variety of cuisines, from hearty stews to grilled favorites.
