￼Happy Weekend, Friends!
A favorite again this weekend… These always sell really fast (they’re a bargain at half-price), so I’d advise coming by early.
Hailing from Lodi, CA, this wine has earthy and smoky aromas followed by plum, vanilla and spice. The complex medley of flavors includes plum, blackberry jam, tobacco, anise and sweet oak. The sturdy but softly integrated tannins yield to subtle oak notes as the wine lingers on the palate. This wine is full of Zinfandel personality! All Mettler Family wines are certified sustainable and organic (see below).
There’s a lot to like about Mettler Family Vineyards. They’re one of the oldest family wine-grape growing families in Lodi, an area that has gained a lot of attention recently, due to its Mediterranean-like climate and soil similar to that of the Southern Cote du Rhone. The Mettlers with their children and spouses grow the grapes, make the wines and generally manage this fantastic business. Then, there’s Duke, the winery dog (that’s him below), who would never, ever give away the family’s secret recipes. 🙂
Pairings? Mushrooms (stuffed or flatbread), meatballs or tomato sauce (Margherita Flatbread).Or… the cheeses and charcuterie….mmmm, housemade Parma Mozz…
