The Petite Sirah for this wine comes from Clarksburg and the Petit Verdot from Lodi, with the blend 60%-40%, respectively. An interesting combination, the wine exudes a great fruity nose, with an earthy tobacco note. It’s big and juicy, like a baked ripe-berry pie.
The Lange Twins are longtime growers in Lodi who also make their own wine, with the help of former Woodbridge winemaker David Akiyoshi. This Bordeaux blend is mostly Petit Verdot and Cabernet, with smaller amounts of Merlot and Malbec in the mix. The time this spent aging in French oak shows through in its minty, full mouthfeel and vanilla tannins.
