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.

    Snoothrank:

    Tasting. Not able to get past overwhelming taste and nose of alcohol. Possibly our bottle has turned or we just cellared past its peak (my husband is finishing his so could just be my problem). Read More

  • Klinker Zinfandel 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Nope, not for me. Me & my other half had a glassful a few nites back. I could not finish mine. Smell & taste over-oaked, instant heartburn. Used it for spaghetti sauce. Read More

  • Klinker Zinfandel 2007

    Snoothrank:
