Morada Vineyards is a traditional winery that does not take itself too seriously and will bring a little fun in your life. The grapes come from vineyards that benefit from the deep rich soils that make-up the Lodi Appellation. The fruit benefits from warm sunny days and cool nights as a result of gentle breezes coming from the San Francisco Bay and the Delta waterways. This allows the fruit to mature and have a proper balance between fruit character and structure.
The wine is more intense with darker violet hues. The aromas have characteristics of blackberry, cassis, and plum; with elements of vanilla and cedar. The wine has a fuller body with flavors of darker fruits coupled with peppercorn, clove and anise, which lend an earthier profile that is balanced and has a long finish. This wine would go well with grilled salmon with a dill butter sauce, roasted chicken with garlic and rosemary, or rib eye Philly cheese steak sandwich.
