Lodi is located between the Sierra Foothills and San Francisco Bay Delta, where cool afternoon and evening breezes provide ideal growing conditions for its world-renowned Zinfandel. This Zinfandel is sourced from 50+year old vines and aged in French and American Oak barrels. This brand name is best defined by Predator as: “Our sustainable way of grape growing ensures the health and vitality of the land. “Natural Predation” is an eco-friendly strategy to control harmful critters in the vineyards. Ladybugs, a natural insect predator, along with predator mites, feed on destructive aphids.”

I love this wine due to its bold intense flavors, especially the blackberry juice, as well as the spice coming from the oak. The long, smooth, finish provides an extended enjoyable experience.
