  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

Very pretty nose full of a little herbal spice over a solid base of floral and soil toned blueberries and black raspberry aromas. This is rather big on entry but it shows super clarity on the palate with fine dusty tannins that show a bit of polish. On the palate there’s a little bit of cocoa then herb and floral framed slightly dried aromatic red berry fruit. With good acids driving the rather long finish, this ends on a rich note of juicy, slightly baked blackberry fruit that does show a touch of heat. 90pts

Tasting Notes:

'This is one of the most compelling examples of this great grape that I’ve ever tasted from the USA, showing dark cherry fruit with real structure and fine underlying acidity. Also impressive and perhaps even more important is the fact that it isn’t overloaded with excessive American oak (as if to mimic a certain stereotypically Spanish style of wine, as is often done with Tempranillo made in the New World). This is a wine its own thing -- not aping something else from somewhere else, and it is doing its thing very, very well. 90pts Michael Franz
