Older vines make bolder Zins. The main source of this Zinfandel, the Bruella Vineyard, is home to vines over forty years old. Sustainably cultivated by Lodi’s Mettler family, these vines product intense, robust Zinfandel with full-tilt flavors.
Brick red and deep purple in the glass, with enticing aromatics of dried plums, black cherry jam and a hint of vanilla incense. One sip unveils flavors of blackberry, dark chocolate and licorice. Smooth on the finish with bracing tannins and lingering notes of blueberry and spice.
Boneshaker’s full body is a great pairing for meaty chuck chili, grilled pork belly or a juicy mushroom hamburger.
