Product Notes:
Old Ghost is making its grand appearance on August 1 & extraordinary with one of the longest growing seasons in Lodi's history. Grapes were harvested during the latter part of October from a 93-year old vineyard and the yields were slightly under a ton per acre. The additional "hang time" and even ripening period produced delicious fruit for a wine that is a veritable layer cake of flavors: brambleberry, spiced cherries, plums, chocolate, cola and a nuance of mint and licorice. From the Winemaker

Food Pairing:
Zinfandel is an excellent wine to pair with a wide variety of meats (excluding poultry and seafood). The classic Zinfandel pairing is BBQ and Chili. Pizza, hamburgers, and hearty pasta dishes also work well.

About Varietal:
Steve and Lori Felten, fifth generation grape growers in the Lodi region, have eleven individual vineyard blocks of “Old Vine” zinfandel, each with their own unique taste and character. Only the best, big styled, full bodied wines go to bottle.

With roots in Germany, Russia and later the Dakotas, the family settled in Lodi, first producing watermelons. Recognizing that the soil and climate were ideal for growing grapes, they began to plant varieties that included Zinfandel, Tokay, Carignane, and Alicante. For over one hundred years, the family has cultivated the land with the aim of producing top quality fruit. Zinfandel was one of the first grape varieties to be planted in the Lodi appellation, although it had also been established in other parts of the California.

Grapes were originally packed in boxes for shipment to the East Coast and Canada for the purpose of home winemaking. In the early days of production, nearly all of the Zinfandel grapes were shipped with the exception of grapes that were used for making wine at home.

By the mid 1930’s, grapes were sold primarily to cooperatives and larger, private wineries with a small portion of the production shipped east.

Historically, the vineyards were irrigated by flood or ditch irrigation and the inability to regulate the amount of water applied resulted in larger yields of marginal quality. In the late 1980’s, drip irrigation was introduced, providing the ability to control the amount of water applied to each vine. This resulted in the ability to control the vigor of the vine, healthier fruit and ultimately, lower yields. With the introduction of more sophisticated vineyard practices, including shoot thinning, leaf pulling, color thinning and the removal of a second crop, the ability to produce the grapes of exceptional quality was realized.
