Joel Gott California Zinfandel


97% Zinfandel

3% Petite Sirah



  • Sierra Foothills
  • Contra Costa
  • Lodi


20% new American oak
80% 2-year-old French oak

The larger part of this blend is sourced from the Lodi and Sierra Foothills appellations where small fruit clusters from decades-old, head-trained vines give the wine its intense concentration. Located within the northeastern hills of the Lodi appellation, loose, stony soil from Borden Ranch allows for strong vine growth and adds great concentration to the wine. Fruit from the Contra Costa AVA adds complexity and concentration. Sourcing from these varied regions across California helps to create an elegant and well-balanced wine.

Across California in 2019, the growing season was long and even, with moderate winter rains resulting in a later-than-usual bud break. Cool spring temperatures followed by warm temperatures in the summer and fall, allowed us to pick our fruit in October. These conditions allowed the fruit to ripen evenly at a steady pace, making for a well-balanced wine.

Following harvest, the fruit was fermented in individual lots and then blended together to balance the characteristics of each grape-growing region. The wine was aged for 12months in 20% new American oak and 80% 2-year-old French oak
