Lange Twins Centennial Zinfandel 2017

Lange Twins Centennial Zinfandel 2017

Grapes are harvested from the Lodi and Lewis Vineyards from 105 year old vines that were trained using the goblet method. Minimal human intervention.
Natural fruitiness and complexity from the historic vineyard. Raspberry and black licorice flavors are delicately expressed, with a hint of oak-derived spice and vanilla. The soft texture and rich tannins are a perfect expression of the elegance of Zinfandel, which has long been rooted in the Lodi region.

The Lang Twins family settled in Lodi in the 1870s and have been growing watermelons here ever since. They began viticulture in 1916.
Learning the know-how of agriculture from their great-grandfather, the grandfather and father expanded the vineyard and started the winery in 2006, and now the fifth generation, along with the sixth generation, are involved in winemaking.
The vineyards are located in Lodi, Clement Hill Sub, and Clarksburg, with over 3,000 hectares of vineyards. The grape varieties range from Zinfandel, the most representative of the Lodi vineyard, to 33 varieties.
The vineyard has 33 varieties, including Zinfandel, the most representative of Lodi's grape varieties. They pride themselves on exploring the potential of each grape variety to create wines that are enjoyable to pair with food. 
The wines are all Certified Green, a natural certification from Lodi, which is granted only to wines that have been rigorously reviewed and approved according to a 101-point criteria.
The winemaker is David Akiyoshi, formerly head winemaker at Robert Mondavi.
