Fields Family Lodi Native Zinfandel Century Block Vineyard 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

1905 own rooted, a few Tokay and Grenache vines 23 24 brix all desteemed Tight, vinous, and a little animal on the nose with white peppery spice on the nose that sits low on the complex and nuanced nose which shows hints of leather and dark berry fruit. This is notably fresh on entry, hinting of blueberries up front followed by gorgeous, big, spicy raspberry flavors and small fine grained tannins. Finishing a bit short but with cut, fine energy and a little sneaky length to the licorice and slightly medicinal finale. This is all old viney, vinous,and deep on the palate, with great palate weight. A rich, powerful yet light on its feet Zin that shows amazing clarity. 93pts

  Fields Family Wines is not just a winery, it’s also a collection. Not a collection of wineries, but a collection of family and friends, all working together to make the vineyard what it is today. After years of searching for the perfect land, the Fields family decided on a place along Woodbridge Road, in the heart of the Lodi appellation. With the help of Ryan Sherman, their winemaker, and the constant care of the Fields family, including Russ, Melinda, Van, Zack, and Mia, they collected their first harvest at the end of 2007. There are three main grapes grown at the Fields Family’s vineyards: Organic Syrah, Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon, and Old Vine Zinfandel. The Syrah has been certified organic, and the highly demanded grapes are used in both the Field Family Wines label as well as in other wines throughout California. Read less
