Oak Ridge OZV Red Blend 2016
|Region||California, Central Valley, Lodi|
This Zinfandel based red wine is full of fresh cherry, blackberry, and jam like fruit with a hint of vanilla on the nose. Silky and soft tannins that lend to an enjoyable finish. Cold soak for 48 hours fermenting cool, over eight days on the grape skins to retain the fresh and bright fruit aromas. Aged for nine months with French oak and American oak selection with a minimal toast to highlight the varietal. Food Pairing: Excellent complement to barbecue beef, pork and chicken dishes. It is also a perfect pairing with Italian red-sauce.
Aromas of strawberry syrup and flavors like raspberry jam give this slightly sweet and soft-textured wine a friendly exuberant personality.
