Ivory & Burt Old Vine Zinfandel 2019
The weather conditions in 2019 were ideal and we were able to pick at the right time for proper ripening. The main varieties were successful and the quality finished exceptionally well.
The wine opens with ripe cherry and concentrated blackberry aromas, with soft oak nuances, smooth tannins, and a lingering finish of juicy blackberry fruit.
IVORY & BURT 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. LODI 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.
