2012 Fields Family Wines Old Vine Zinfandel The Century Block Lodi
Fields Family Wines are small lot handcrafted gems which showcase the vineyards character. The relationship between winegrower and winemaker makes for the production of high quality wines with little intervention to the wine making process. Russ Fields owner has maintained the property as California Certified Organic Farming Certification.
The nose exhibits intense blackberry and dark cherry with hints of clove, fresh chopped herbs and white pepper. Inviting aromatics definitely perfectly harvested grapes.
The mouth is full of ripe juicy cherry, raspberry and blackberry with a touch of spice on the finish. Soft, silky elegant Zinfandel. The wine paired nicely with my pulled bbq pork sandwiches. Well done Fields Family Wines and great price point under $25.
Stop by the tasting room at 3803 E Woodbridge Rd Acampo CA open 11-5 Thursday to Monday. Enjoy a tour, picnic and even barrel tastings (which is a must if you want to see how wine evolves).
