About This Wine:
The Lodi appellation has a classic Mediterranean climate featuring warm days and cool evenings. It sits at the edge of the San Joaquin/Sacramento River Delta, where cool “delta breezes” provide the region with reliable, natural air conditioning throughout the grape-growing season.
In recent years, fourth- and fifth-generation growers dedicated to the soils and vines have brought creative winemaking and cutting-edge technology to Lodi, catapulting the region into the spotlight. It’s predominately a red winegrowing region, with about two-thirds of the acreage dedicated to red varieties.
The star variety is Zinfandel, and Iron Rock Cellars makes a benchmark version that is well balanced, medium-bodied and delightfully fruitful. The 2017 vintage is a wine of great finesse, and a perfect companion to everything from Hoisin duck dumplings to your favorite grilled meats to a spicy pepperoni pizza.
