About This Wine:
Welcome to Lodi, California. Lodi gained its lofty reputation in part because its vineyards produce about 40 percent of the premium Zinfandel in California, but mainly because Lodi Zin has unique characteristics that appeal to aficionados and everyday wine drinkers alike.
In the world of wine, “terroir” is the French word for land and represents the unique place where grapes are grown. The concept of terroir encompasses the soils, geography and climate of the region. Depending on the winemaking processes used, the terroir can be expressed to varying degrees in the final product.
In Lodi, the Mediterranean climate keeps residents, visitors and winemakers happy. Mild year-round temperatures, warm days and cool nights all help produce grapes with full flavor and perfect acidity — and delectable wines like the 2020 Crown Peak Winery Zinfandel. Brimming with bright red cherry fruit and accented by spice notes, it’s a stunning example of Lodi Zin.
