Lodi?AVA, part?of the larger Central Valley wine region of?California, is located directly east of San Francisco Bay between the cities of Sacramento and Stockton. The west of the region lies close to the edge of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, while its eastern boundary runs parallel with the?Sierra Foothills.
This wine is big, broad and deep. There are wood-smoke and tobacco aromas along with blackberry and black-cherry flavors. The body is full and thick but there are soft tannins in the texture.?JIM GORDON
