Steve and Lori Felten, fifth generation grape growers in the Lodi region, continue the tradition of cultivating “Old Vine” Zinfandel vineyards that their ancestors planted in the early 1900’s. With roots in Germany, Russia and later the Dakotas, the family settled in Lodi, first producing watermelons. Recognizing that the soil and climate were ideal for growing grapes, they began to plant varieties that included Zinfandel, Tokay, Carignane, and Alicante. For over one hundred years, the family has cultivated the land with the aim of producing top quality fruit. Zinfandel was one of the first grape varieties to be planted in the Lodi appellation, although it had also been established in other parts of the California. Grapes were originally packed in boxes for shipment to the East Coast and Canada for the purpose of home winemaking. In the early days of production, nearly all of the Zinfandel grapes were shipped with the exception of grapes that were used for making wine at home. By the Read more »

  • Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The wine has a nice deep ruby color and the nose is pure Zinfandel with notes of black cherry, anise and cocoa powder. The taste is lovely, with some light floral notes amid rich ripe cherry and plum on the outset, transitioning into some nice licorice and baking spice midpalate. The finish is very smooth and dry, as the soft tannins lend plen... Read More

    Wine review by RandyFisher


  • Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed spicy red and blue fruit, herbal tea, cedar and wood tones, cinnamon and a hint of cherry tobacco. On the palate, it was as smooth as silk with weighty textures. Dark fruits, spiced cookie, brown sugar and medicinal cherry were made fresh by its streamlined acidity. The finish was lasting yet pleasantly fresh and fruity. (89 p... Read More

  • Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Let's start this by saying OMG, this is a great wine. Once I smelled it I knew I would like it. Fills the nose with that deep berry aroma. Tastes of berry, sweet on the entire mouth, vanilla, cedar, nice soft pepper spice and a wonderful taste left in the mouth. This is one of the best I've tried. Wow! Read More

    Bold flavor from the get go. Soft mouthfeel with a sweet palate that continually builds to the finish. Notable oak backing with a hint of vanilla and noticeable alcohol. Well done. Read More

    Wine review by tabednar


  • Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Aroma of cherry, berry, vanilla and a hint of cedar. Color is very dark purple. On the palate rich cherry, ripe plum, some faint hint of nutmeg along with raspberry and a peppery note. A medium long finish. The wine is jammy and really coats the whole mouth. Read More

  • Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of cinnamon spice on the nose with cedar. Dusty, baking spice aromas along with dried herbs and white pepper. Wild blackberry and bramble fruits. Boysenberry as well.
