Old Vine Red is our Zinfandel based blend that has become known for quality, consistency, and approachability. As with all lots of this blend, Lot 56 aims to walk the fine line between seriousness and fun. The aromas of ripe blackberries, dark cherries, and plum jump from the glass. The fruit is supported by spice, earth, and subtle oak. The mouth feel is full and rich with lingering supple tannins. The lengthy finish shows those tannins while being balanced with ample acidity.
Bright light red. Enticing aromas of red cherry, cinnamon, flowers and licorice. Juicy and vibrant in the mouth, with harmonious acidity framing the red fruit, spice and floral flavors. Finishes long and crisp. Great entry-level wine
