Sourced from one of the older vineyards in the region, Mettler has stayed true to Lodi's larger Zinfandel style with Epicenter, a wine that's black as night with notes of dark berry, plum, tar and brick, as well as a hint of tobacco and dark chocolate. Layered and complex, it's full bodied, but retains enough acidity to taste balanced despite its oak and ample alcohol. Enjoy with hearty fare.
