This Saturday we will taste new arrivals of old Zinfandel favorites. Lodi is one of our favorite growing areas for well endowed Zins of voluptuous body and of rich extraction. The wines we will be probing are sensual in nature and ultimately satisfying for even the hard core Zinfandel addicted. You will find the price is right.
