Michael’s winemaking style has involved native fermentation...discovering and exploring the layers and trueness of this "old world style" winemaking. Concentrating on Zinfandel and Rhone varietals has become a passion at McCay Cellars.
Practices & Techniques
An Eastside Lodi Zin classic with its retention of high acidity and tight tannins, this is a complex wine with spicy leather, black tea and bright raspberry flavors. Elegant, soft and extremely drinkable, it has a smooth mid-palate that lingers to the finish—a parting gift of cherry and vanilla that’ll keep you coming back for more.

One sip of this fine elixir from McCay Cellars and Lodi Zinfandel should earn some equity in your cellar well at least a bottle placement or two. Wines of this pedigree are not all that common these days and Lodi should be getting a little more love from wine consumers who appreciate a Zinfandel with finesse. The initial aromas are reminiscent of a late harvested fruit smoothie made with blackberry, sweet Oregon cherry, hazelnut and a hint of figs. On the palate it is a texturally pleasing wine that is lush, plush and sensual. The big berry swirl flavor continues to come through all the way to the long lingering finish making this a perfect match for fall tailgating grill items and slow smoked southern BBQ. For a blockbuster experience that emanates the soul of Lodi, grab a bottle of this McCay Zin and share it with love. 288 cases produced.
