The 2018 season was memorable one, generating some of the best fruit Klinker Brick has had in years. It was long and cool from beginning to end, resulting in natural acidity and pure fruit expression across the portfolio. Winter rain setup yields that were above average, requiring our team to thin out bunches to maintain our high standard for fruit concentration. The 2018 red varietals present a fresher, brighter quality as the fruit was able to reach full ripeness through a natural maturation process without Lodi's typical high heat spikes midseason. This exceptionally cool, long growing season in conjunction with our venerated old vine estate generated wines with superb color, ideal tannin structure and beautiful flavor.
