Vineyard: Cherryhouse Vineyard. West side Lodi is known for deep sandy soils and these vines were planted there in 1965. The vineyard is farmed organically by new ownership since 2014 when the Perlegos brothers purchased it. We pick early based on acidity and flavor in order to vinify a fresh and light version of Lodi Zinfandel.
The Cellar: Foot trodden in one ton fermenters, no corrections to chemistry, no inoculations. Pressed to neutral puncheons for a short élevage. No racking, no fining or filtration. Minimal effective SO2 at bottling.
