Macchia Zinfandel Lodi Outrageous Old Vine Noma Ranch 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Custom Barrels "outrageous" Lodi Old Vine, Noma Ranch. One sip and you will know how this wine got it's name. a designated section of this 80+ year old vineyard was personally managed by the wine maker himself. He set strict limits on the crop load and was consulted, if and when, any irrigation took place. Labor intensive practices of hand leaf removal and dropping unwanted clusters of grapes insured even ripening and perfect balance in the wine. This wine will make you proud to be "Stuck in Lodi." awards: Silver - San Francisco Chronicle, 2007 Bronze - El Dorado County Wine Competition, 2007 Months in barrel: 12 Months
