Campus Oaks 2010 Zinfandel Old Vine Reserve

Lodi is famously well known for its Old Vine Zinfandel, so it’s no surprise the wine has also been the backbone of Lodi’s Gnekow Family Winery. This 2010 Reserve Old Vine Zinfandel is from 80+ year-old vines with incredible depth and concentration of berry fruit and spice flavors – the characteristics we love and expect in an Old Vine Zin. Produced from the cooler-than-normal 2010 vintage, the fruit for this wine had a longer growing season and hang time, which gave the grapes much more flavor and texture to contribute to the finished wine. The Campus Oaks 2010 Reserve Old Vine Zinfandel is an excellent bottling with spicy, peppery tones, red berry fruit flavors, and chocolatey vanilla undertones. Its jammy finish is balanced with hints of oak and soft tannins. This wine has great structure and nice balance. [+]
