As 5th generation growers, Steve and Lori Felton own 250 acres, most of which is old vine Zinfandel planted along the Lodi Mokelumne River region and in the Clements Foothills. For over a century, the family has sold their premium, old vine fruit to benchmark Zinfandel producers until 2000 when Steve and Lori founded Klinker Brick Winery in Lodi, CA. The 250 acre estate is planted on sandy loam soils with vines that range from 35 to 110 years old that are head-trained and dry farmed. The vineyards is divided into fifteen blocks, with an average yield is 2-3.5 tons/acre; the older parcels yield as little as .25 tons/acre. Steve and Lori also a small 16 acre parcel called Farrah which is planted to Syrah. Although the Feltons continue to make wine from all of the vineyard blocks, only the best fruit is used for Klinker Brick and their single vineyard wines. “We started the winery with the 2000 vintage of Old Vine Zinfandel. We added the 2001 Farrah the next year, and the 2003 Old Ghost a couple of years later. Old Ghost of course, represents the best of what we make every year and is usually a single vineyard selection, stated Steve Felton. “We have one goal…to produce world-class wine.

Tasting notes
Bright, fruit forward elements of wild strawberry and Satsuma plum lead to flavors of black cherry and vanilla with slight hints of cedar. A well structured effort that offers supple tannins and a long and smooth finish.

Technical notes
Grapes harvested from vines that are 85 years old on average were aged in American oak for 14 months.
