The 2018 vintage could quite possibly be one of the best ever for Lodi thanks to a near perfect growing season. Situated 100 miles directly east of the San Francisco Bay at the edge of the San Joaquin/Sacramento River Delta, cool “delta breezes” provide the region with a reliable, natural air conditioning throughout the growing season. In 2018, Lodi was spared from extreme weather variations allowing uniform clusters to develop concentrated flavors and the long season brought natural acidity and rich fruit expression.
The fruit was picked based on flavor and tannin ripeness. Upon arrival to the winery, it was destemmed and placed into fermenters and allowed to soak for 24 hours. After a controlled warm fermentation (85F) the wine was pressed when the winemaking team considered the tannins to be in balance and at the correct level. The base of the wine is Merlot followed by Syrah bringing the red fruit characteristics with a note of spice. A small amount of Tempranillo and Tannat was adding to the spicy red notes and intense color.
Lodi has been grape growing since the 1850s and in most places, the soil is deep loam which is similar to the French Rhône region of Châteauneuf du Pape. Lodi is predominately a red wine growing region, with approximately two-thirds of the acreage dedicated to red varieties. Lodi’s soils, warm days and cool nights are a natural match for varieties making a name in other parts of the world. Local vintners have been experimenting with planting Spanish varieties like Tempranillo and Rhône varieties like Tannat capturing critical attention from top wine writers and the hearts of wine enthusiasts across the country.
