Lodi’s Old Vine Zinfandels are highly sought after and recognized as one of California’s classic varietals. The results are coming in for the 2003 Abundance Mencarini Vineyards Old Vine Zinfandel, and so far, the winery has won a Silver Medal at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and a Silver Medal at the Orange County Fair Wine Competition. The fruit of these 60-100 year old head-pruned vines is extremely rich and spicy and perfectly structured, which is prevalent in the bouquet and flavor of this delicious Old Vine Zin. A deep purple color with rich violet rim denotes the boldness of this wine. The juicy berry flavors, clove and mature oak tannins are framed with moderate alcohol which enhances the lengthy finish. A well balanced, sturdy wine to enjoy with fresh tomato sauces on pastas, your favorite Italian food, grilled meats or with any strong cheese.
