Tasting Notes
Predator Zinfandel is sourced from 50+ year old vines that produce rich and intensely flavoured fruit. The resulting wine is big and bold with hallmark "old vine" velvety texture, spice and vibrant varietal flavours. Aromas and flavours of bright raspberry and cherry complimented by spicy black pepper. 10 months in French and American oak allow soften the tannins for a velvety smooth mouth-feel along with smoky oak notes.

Ladybugs would suggest pairing this Old Vine Zinfandel with fresh aphids or mites – but we recommend short ribs or a juicy burger.

The fog influenced Napa Valley is home to many of California’s premium wineries. This famous valley around the natural springs of Oakville, includes the thin strip of soil known as the Rutherford Bench where some of the state’s most highly prized vineyards are planted. It is where great Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are grown and sublime Pinot Noirs from the southern Carneros end of the valley.

Wines crafted for rich and deep fruit flavors along with distinctive oak character. Lodi, a Central Valley appellation, is known for its legendary "Old Vine" Zinfandels. Situated between the Sierra Foothills and the San Francisco Bay Delta, Lodi benefits from cool afternoon and evening breezes, creating ideal growing conditions for its world-renowned Zinfandel. The wines are made with a sustainable approach of ‘Natural Predation’ as an eco-friendly way to control harmful critters with insect predators such as Ladybugs and Mites to help ensure the health and vitality of the land.
