Tasting notes
With aromas of bright, vibrant fruit, Lot 63 announces itself as a beautiful, traditional Zinfandel. This blend gets its richness and roundness from the addition of Syrah and Petite Sirah.

Their great value pick, which has essentially underwritten the winery’s success for many years, is their non-vintage Old Vine, and in this case, the NV Old Vine Red Lot 63, the sixty-third rendition of this lovely blend. Dominated by Zinfandel, but also containing Syrah and Petite Sirah, it’s always meant as a boisterous, exuberant Mediterranean-style red, the likes of which are easy to find in parts of Spain, Southern Italy and Southern France. The oak is pushed back to a minimum, and the NV Lot 63 includes wine from four vintages: 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, which makes these blends about two years of age. It’s an amazing value and has been in every rendition. Deep ruby in color, with notes of pepper, grilled or roasted herbs, steak tartare and briary, delicious black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, the wine is well-made, medium-bodied, supple and luscious. They produced about 60,000 cases, so availability is terrific and the wine capable of lasting 4-5 years, if not longer. But that’s not the point - it’s meant to be drunk upon release.

Wine maker notes
Old Vine Red is our modern California version of an Old World table wine - one that can be enjoyed with food or without, for a special occasion or for simple pleasure. It is a non-vintage blend of mostly Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Carignane with small amounts of other varieties included for complexity. Old Vine Red is a delicious, well-made, textured and balanced wine that continues to be amazingly consistent 30 years after the first lot was released.

Food pairing
Smooth, supple, with great density and structure this wine holds up to almost any food but is pleasurable by itself.
