Eola Hills Lodi Zinfandel 1999
Food and Wine Pairing: This rich Zinfandel makes a great companion for roasts, grilled game and turkey. Try it with smoked orange marinated duck, with Chanterelles and sage.
Situated in a natural weather shadow of the Coast Range, which shunts storms from the Pacific Ocean north to Portland and south below Salem, the Eola Hills vineyards are protected from weather extremes. Yet in summer, a gorge carved by ancient glaciers draws in maritime air to provide ideal cooling for sensitive varietals in those warmer months.
