2014 Zinjo


Zinjo is a delightful blend of 50% Zinfandel, from Block 14 here on the Estate, and 50% Sangiovese, from the Mohr-Fry Ranches just south of Lodi. Aged in neutral oak for 18 months, it is a medium-bodied wine with a balance of acidity and tannins. Fragrant with beautiful hues, savory with great fruit expression, and a pleasing lively long lasting finish.
