Delicato Family Vineyards
The Delicato family vineyards have a very large range of wines that each represent the site, terroir or grape that the specific project is focussed on. In this instance, they focus on the ancient zinfandel vines that they have in the northerly Lodi appellation. Hot and arid vineyard conditions make these grapes wonderfully intense and dark, though they are often in small quantity. These grapes are frequently left to hang on the vines to a point of raisining to further enhance the character of the wine, increasing colour, flavour concentration and alcohol. This wine is a great example of the winery's care and the vindication of their vineyard decisions. It is rich, smooth and warm: delicious as a Zinfandel on its own and excellent with red meats and pizza.
