2021 St. Amant Mohr-Fry Ranch Old Vine Zinfandel
A big ripe chewy Zinfandel made in a style to highlight the rich raspberry and spicy blackberry fruit character of these old Lodi Zinfandel Vineyards.
To many of our customers this wine is simply known as “Mohr-Fry.” To others, it’s just the St. Amant Old Vine, and honestly we don’t care what people call it as long as they keep drinking it. Regardless, the 2021 is our 26th vintage of our Mohr-Fry Ranch Old Vine Zinfandel – a wine that has come to define us, and to a great extent help define Lodi. When we first produced it back in 1996, we were one of only a very small handful of small producers setting up shop in Lodi. At first, convincing the world that Lodi could make great wines was a bit of a challenge, but with persistence, consistency, and lot of good Zin others have come to recognize the potential in this storied wine growing region. And the 2021 Mohr-Fry builds upon that tradition – it’s a full-bodied, rich Zin, redolent of blackberries and raspberries that drinks delicious now and should age well for 4-5 years.
