18196 N Davis Road, Lodi, CA 95242

Phone: (209) 368-2006

Hours: Thurs - Sun 12 - 4:30pm

One ofhte oldest wineries in Lodi area, extremely friendly staff. First ime, I've ever had someone come out to great me as I park and walk in. On entry, the owner David Lucas greeted us and informed us that there were a series of carnival games outside involving used corks, that were very amusing. Lucas has a lot of history and experience in Zinfandels. Unlike many of their neighbours, they have stayed focused on a couple of varietals rather than growing and bottling every varietal you can think of. A very enjoyable visit and well worth it if you can make it on one of their special open days.

Zinfandel from 55 year old vines, good body with nice fruit and tnanin balance and a limited amount of pepper. Very nice, probably the best of hte day.

Balanced and drinkable, but nothing to write home about.

75 year old vines that produce a more tannic wine, that also comes with a lot of pepper. This will probably improve with time, if fruit can stand up to the tannins.

Sweet, but very drinkable - especially with the chocolate that they serve with this wine.

Almost a Rose of Zinfandel, best served very chilled. Very light in flavour and pleasing to the tongue, but does not taste that great when not cold enough.
2005 Chardonnay ($29)Rating: A

Nice and cold on a very hot day, but too oaky for me
