2016 The 19022017 The 1902: Ancient Vine Zinfandel

These vines were planted over 110 years ago and are producing some of the loveliest Zinfandel on the east side of Lodi. The Schmiedt family is currently farming this vineyard and introduced me to this hidden gem. The wine is elegant and refined but still has plenty of fruit.

2017 Hatterle Zinfandel

Mr. Hatterle has been farming this vineyard for almost 50 years. The Zinfandel was planted in 1930 on its own roots and has never been grafted. This wine is a true expression of Zinfandel with its roots deep in the soils of Lodi. Unearth a rare and powerful example of Lodi’s finest.

This is my best vintage of Stem Theory yet. An addition of grape stems into the fermentation process gives this wine a style unique from other wines in the region.
