May’s Wines

Solid Ground Pinot Noir 2017

A perfect example of Lodi terroir, this Pinot expresses big fruit and ample richness for the varietal. The nose pops with lots of floral tones, cherry, raspberry and hints of blackberry. The blackberry notes, from the blended Zinfandel, gives this wine its distinct Lodi character. The palate is soft and round, with good weight for the varietal, yet still maintains the gentle acidity in the mid-palate that is distinctly Pinot.  Frankie and Johnnie Wines have teamed up with Oak Ridge Winery, to produce and bottle Solid Ground. Built in 1934, Oak Ridge Winery is the oldest operating winery in Lodi, California. The wines are made from 7,500 acres of estate vineyards throughout the Lodi American Viticultural Area (AVA), situated between the Sierra Navada foothills and the San Francisco Bay. The area’s uniquely Mediterranean climate, with warm days and coastal evening breezes, is ideal for the cultivation of world-class wine grapes.
