Landsman Zinfandel 2016 is made from a single vineyard in Lodi, California. After six years working with Mettler Family Vineyard in Lodi, we have developed a good understanding of its unique terroir, and quality in the bottle continues to improve as a result. But this is not your average Zin! Rather, it is a fine example of why the Lodi appellation is renowned for some of the best Zinfandel in California. Located in the Sacramento Delta region east of Napa Valley, Lodi is California’s best known wine region for Zinfandel grapes, which have been farmed there for more than 150 years. Some of the early “old vines” are still visible today, producing minute amounts of intensely flavored grapes. Zinfandel is typically very fruit-forward and soft textured, perfect for early drinking.
This wine already expresses lovely plum and black cherry flavors, highlighted by spice and floral notes reminiscent of violets. Silky, smooth tannins lend a classic elegance.
