Red Wine | Zinfandel
Asylum Lodi Zinfandel Red Wine 2016 is a blend of 90% Zinfandel and 10% Petite Verdot. It exudes big, vibrant tones of fresh farm raspberries with an undertone of vanilla and cedar. Bright red fruits continue on the palate, showcasing the Lodi region. Strong notes of bramble fruit, black tea, and brown spices give this wine an elegant, yet powerful finish. Firm, smooth tannins with lush acidity integrate a lengthy finish.
The Lodi appellation is best known for its unique style of Zinfandel. Lodi's micro-climate of warm days and cold nights is a direct product of the region's proximity to the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. Similar to a Mediterranean climate, it provides a perfect setting for growing concentrated and lush grape clusters. Asylum Zinfandel pairs well with pork chops, pasta, ribeye, or chocolate. Enjoy!
