Caricature Old Vine Zinfandel 2016
Opening with bold aromas that are distinctly Old Vine Zinfandel, our 2015 vintage has the intrinsic spiciness the varietal in known for. On the palate, layers of bright fruit flavors reminiscent of raspberry jam join integrated oak notes from 9 months of aging in predominantly American oak. The result is a balance between Old Vine Zinfandel spice, a touch of oak, and juicy berry notes.

Charles Ivory and J.M. Burt were two of Lodi’s earliest settlers - starting the first store next to the railroad station on Pine and Sacramento Streets. The Ivory Store brought together a myriad of unique folks who created this special place - homesteaders, farmers and even winemakers. Ivory & Burt Wines celebrate our home, the people of Lodi, and of course, the unmistakable wines made here. Settled in 1859 and officially incorporated in 1906, Lodi’s first citizens flocked to the area because of the railroad, but stayed for the agriculture opportunities. From wheat to watermelons, Lodi’s original crops took advantage of the same climate and soil that makes it a prime location for growing high-quality wine grapes today. The fertile soils are rich in minerals but well-drained and the classic Mediterranean climate with warm afternoons and cool evenings allow wine grapes to develop ripe fruit flavors. Fruit-forward wines with a nice acid balance characterizes the quintessential style which Lodi is known.
