Description: Exactly how do Zinfandels from Lodi’s oldest vines compare to ancient vine Zinfandels grown in Sonoma County, Napa Valley, Paso Robles, Contra Costa and Amador County? The best way to find out is to taste them “blind,” preferably with the guidance of some of the most Zinfandel-knowledgeable wine professionals in the state.
This ZinFest pre-event will consist of 12 Zinfandels from all these classic wine regions – all the wines sourced from vines planted an average of over 100 years ago. The objective will be to delineate and discuss terroir related sensory qualities, which will be discussed by three panelists of impeccable credentials: Mike Dunne (Columnist, “Dunne on Wine,” and The Sacramento Bee), Steve Eliot (Editor, Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine), and Catherine Fallis MS (Planet Grape®, Grape Goddess®, author of “10 Grapes to Know”). The panel/tasting will be moderated by Randy Caparoso (editor for lodiwine.com and The SOMM Journal).
