“The Mettler family heritage honors over 100 years and six generations of farming in Lodi with the release of this ?Epicenter? old vine Zinfandel. The size of the crop, the time spent on the vine, and the many months aged in French oak barrels all reflect the care the family took to fully express the potential of the estate vineyard.” – winery The 2019 Mettler Zinfandel entices with intense aromas of ripe wild blueberry and a hint of black pepper. The sturdy but softly integrated tannins yield to subtle notes of vanilla and cedar as the wine lingers on your palate. A light touch of acidity creates a balance while retaining the juicy fruit forward personality that is uniquely Zinfandel.
