2014 Old Vine Zinfandel
Located on the western edge of Lodi's Mokelumne River sub-appellation, Bare Ranch is home to 170 acres of Michael David Winery vineyards. In the heart of these vineyards, 8 acres of the original plantings remains a historic old vine block of Zinfandel. Planted on its natural root in one of the sandiest locations in Lodi, these extremely deep rooted vines struggle to produce a meager 2 tons to the acre. The bright berry fruit and peppery finish exemplify some of the iconic notes the west side terroir is known for. This vintage, we were able to capture a small amount and share under the Michael David label for you to enjoy.
