We chose to honor Charlie Piazza’s half century of growing in Lodi by making an anagram of his name to christen this classic old-style Zin. These gnarly head-trained vines deliver brilliant wild cherry jam on a milk chocolate-marshmallow background. S’more, please!
Wine Maker’s Tasting Notes:
Zippy Bing cherry pie in a graham cracker crust, creamy Hershey’s milk chocolate and a bit of toasted marshmallow—not sweet but soft and round - balanced by juicy acidity, with a creamy
caramello oak and a long cherry finish. Yummy s’mores with cherry jam.
