Zinfandel, 'California', Joel Gott

Late summer heat waves created one of the shortest growing seasons to date, causing fruit to be picked early and harvest to end in September.  Small fruit clusters from decades-old, head-trained vines in Lodi and Amador give the wine its intense concentration. Loose, stony soil from the newly sourced Borden Ranch AVA allows for strong vine growth, and also adds great concentration to the wine.  After fermentation, the wine was aged in 20% new American oak and 80% 2-year-old French oak.
