Moss Roxx Zinfandel - $24.00

Moss Roxx Zinfandel(No rating yet)

Made from all 100 year old vines this is crossing over Old Vine into Ancient Vine Zinfandel. All jammy and juicy with loads of black fruits and berries. Shining mocha and vanilla on the finish this will show nicely with any Zin out there, even Orin Swift the Prisoner. Try and see.

From Lodi's oldest winery, 7% Petite Sirah and 93% Zinfandel, some of the vines are 120 years old. Picks up awards pretty regularly like a double gold in the CA State Fair Wine Competition 2012.

Lodi is ideally situated between the Sierra Nevada foothills and the San Francisco Bay.  Warm days and cool evening breezes (marine influences) create a uniquely Mediterranean climate perfectly suited to cultivating California's top varietals- Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel. While all these grapes thrive here, Zinfandel is a singular phenomenon. Old vines, some over 120 years old, gnarled and sculpted by time, yield small amounts of fruit to create a wine that is the ultimate expression of the terroir.

Our community includes multi-generational families of winemakers and growers. The area also attracts a new generation of vintners who see the opportunities for crafting great wines while setting down their own roots in a nurturing environment.

Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Bonavita Red

    #1 Bonavita Red

    Made from four grapes harvested later than usual to achieve a greater ripeness and smoothness. A deep and inky wine, with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. Nice ripe fig and cherry with chocolate and licorice flavors. Just enough oak to give it some backbone.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Tintero Moscato

    #2 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible. (behind by 13 bottles)

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #3 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays. (behind by 7 bottles)

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #4 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. (behind by 1 bottles)

Fun New Arrivals

    Broc Carignan

    From 130+ yr old vines, and on original rootstock comes this remarkable Carignan. All native yeasts, no SO2 used during production means pure bright flavors of tart cherry, blueberry and unmistakeable juicy tang from carbonic maceration. Why spend $34 on wine.com?

  • Farm to Table

    Farm to Table

    A fun and lighter style from the cool mountains of Victoria. Aromas of fresh strawberry, cherry jam flirt with notes of forest floor a touch of peppery oak. Lively cola and raspberry flavors with vibrant acidity. Darn good value too!
