As any savvy California wine aficionado will tell you, Lodi is Zinfandel Country. The unique soils and warm climate coax the very best from this classic California varietal. In the hands of Herzog's expert winemakers, it becomes a rich and powerful wine with an eye-opening aromatic profile of ripe strawberry and freshly-cracked black pepper. Additional spices emerge on the palate, plus notes of red cherry and fruitcake. Great with high-quality barbecue foods, an artisan thin-crust pizza, or try it with a fine dark chocolate.
