Planted in 1944, the Dogtown Vineyard is farmed by Turley Wine Cellars. This head-trained, own-rooted vineyard is technically within the Clements Hills AVA, which has more topography than the rest of Lodi. The rolling hills are composed of clay & volcanic soils, and vine yields are extremely low. The wine is characterized by dark red fruit flavors, spice & black tea.

Wine AdvocateThe 2000 Zinfandel Dogtown (16.2% alcohol) is a huge effort. It is not as complex as some of its siblings, but it offers copious amounts of straightforward berry fruit intermixed with balsam wood, earth, and spice characteristics. The wine is full, with loads of glycerin, but not the nuances displayed by the other Zins. It will drink well for 4-6 years.
